 Problem Description:

 Updated yaml package fixes security vulnerability
 
 Ivan Fratric of the Google Security Team discovered a heap-based buffer
 overflow vulnerability in LibYAML, a fast YAML 1.1 parser and emitter
 library. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted YAML
 document that, when parsed by an application using libyaml, would cause
 the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
 the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2014-2525).
