[slackware-security] libsoup (SSA:2017-223-02)


New libsoup packages are available for Slackware 14.1, 14.2, and -current to

fix a security issue.



Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:


patches/packages/libsoup-2.52.2-i586-3_slack14.2.txz: Rebuilt.

Fixed a chunked decoding buffer overrun that could be exploited against

either clients or servers.

For more information, see:


(* Security fix *)




Where to find the new packages:



Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab

(http://osuosl.org) for donating FTP and rsync hosting

to the Slackware project! :-)


Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for

additional mirror sites near you.
