The version of this package was bumped to 0.9.8g, same as openssl package, thanks for the patience :)
Older versions of this package are affected by the same security advisories reported for the openssl package reported here: http://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20071012.txt
Again, I ask for the help of the more experienced users to test this packages, thank you very much.
