CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3158
Debian Bug     : http://bugs.debian.org/762789

This updates fixes a potential integer overflow in option parsing.

A user in the group "dip" could provide a specially crafted
configuration file of more than 2G and generate an integer overflow.
This may enable an attacker to overwrite the heap and thereby corrupt
security-relevant variables.
