so I think that just checking

	if (len < 0)
		break;

will just prevent any of these attacks. Since in theory you can also do this via the options, but then you can leak at max 2 octets.

I posted a simple patch for this. It would be however good if this gets verified that I understood the issues correctly.

Regards

Marcel
