I've picked up arj from the AUR and will clean it up now. This includes
adding patches for the mentioned security issues (which are also used by
fedora, debian and others).
After a short discussion round in the IRC we considered that it may get
moved back to community at some point (I would also maintain it then).

The updated AUR package will be pushed in aprox. 1-2h, I'm still doing
some tests before pushing the new PKGBUILD.
