Upstream bug report indicates that this should be fixed in 1.0.0 and newer.  Is the fix going to be backported to epel6?
Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2016-03-31 19:17:37 EDT
I'm the Fedora maintainer of this module.  I didn't really want to get involved with the EPEL branches but I'm tired of looking at this security bug and it hapens to be assigned to someone who isn't involved with the package at all.

I'm going to reassign to jehane in the hopes that he has some interest in the el6 branch.  I'm not interested in doing backpports; the only thing I would do is to pull the current Fedora version down to the EPEL branches.  That isn't trivial because it now needs utf8::all which is in EPEL7 but not 6 or 5.
