[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:
