Default XZ Exploit

Has anyone taken the steps to avoid the XZ exploit on Fedora, Arch or any other rolling distribution?`
On my part, I've downgraded XZ to several previous versions.

This is already fixed on Arch, if you do a full system upgrade you will get xz 5.6.1-2, which does not have the backdoor. Can't say about Fedora, but I imagine all the maintainers are working just as quickly to correct this
