exim 4.83 includes a fix for a minor security issue (local privilege
escalation to exim user) which I would like to fix for stable. I have
already doublechecked with debian security that fixing this via a
stable update instead of a DSA is the right thing to do.

debdiff attached.

This is CVE-2014-2972.
