(PyCrypto: Execution of arbitrary code)
Mike Wiacek of the Google Security Team reported a buffer overflow in
the ARC2 module when processing a large ARC2 key length.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to decrypt an
ARC2 stream in an application using PyCrypto, possibly resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
