A guy called Morten Hustveit created a modified version of the exploit that patches the vulnerability: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=464953#14 Could be a nice temporary fix.

Reading through the thread it appears it's better to use this if you need a quick fix: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=464953#65 Caveat: I have not tried any of this.
