In case you are entitled to access the security repo:
*and* use the 4.92.2+fixes branch:

The branch got two new commits, fixing a small tool. This tool is not
designed to process untrusted data, so there is no security issue, but
it was buggy. It is unlikely to be critical.

You may consider including the fix in the packages to be
released at CRD (today, 10.00 UTC) or schedule it for a later
maintainance release of the Exim packages.
