some help on a security related thing?

We recently received an email about a libssh2 security problem, but it turns
out basically none of us old "maintainers" of this project (me and Alexander
Lamaison at least) feel that we have enough time and energy to handle it.

This is ultimately a cry for help that this project needs more hands on deck
to function, but to at least handle this immediate short-term crisis I would
like you call for volunteers to help us work on this specific problem now. To
investigate it and work on a fix, or fixes together with the person who has
found the issue.

Failing to deal with it will eventually end up with the issue getting
published without any action from our end prior to that, and that would be
very unfortunate.

Any takers?
