         if (opt_left < TCP_OPTION_LENGTH_MIN || option->length > opt_left) {
-            DEBUG("gnrc_tcp_option.c : _option_parse() : invalid option length\n");
-            return 0;
+            DEBUG("gnrc_tcp_option.c : _option_parse() : Invalid option. Drop Packet.\n");
+            return -1;

Well the 'return 0' is actually part of the buggy behavoir. If the condition comes true, the given options violates the basic option structure either by being to small or exceeding the remaining buffer. In both cases the packet is malformed.
