There have been some important updates that have occurred since the
publication of this advisory:

1) When the advisory was published, the patch for the stable/essex
branch had not been merged.  It has now been merged and is *different*
than the original patch.  If you pulled the earlier patch, please update
to the final version.

2) It was discovered that the patches submitted for stable/folsom and
master (grizzly) did not completely solve the problem.  The original
patch only fixed the problem for the v1 API.  The problem still existed
for the v2 API.  Please see this commit for the additional patch:
