"Stack based out-of-bounds memory read"
Quote from URL:
"... though given the nature of the bug, while it will trip ASAN, there's no way to exploit it and it only occurs over unix domain sockets. No data is copied past the end of any buffers. Still, we take this seriously and have repaired the offending code, just in case."
OK to cleanup?
