8.4 is only affected by -5288, but I think it's a minor issue for
which I don't plan a DSA even for wheezy, but only through

What will happen though is that we (credativ) will be releasing a new
LTS version of the 8.4 branch which will get included in squeeze-lts,
so this issue will still get fixed in squeeze-lts.

Thanks for the boilerplate - you might have noticed that we indeed
took care of this package in the past :)

I've updated CVE/list, not sure if you want to have the above noted in
dla-needed.txt as well.
