[slackware-security] libXres (SSA:2017-291-01)

New libXres 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/libXres-1.2.0-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Integer overflows may allow X servers to trigger allocation of insufficient
memory and a buffer overflow via vectors related to the (1)
XResQueryClients and (2) XResQueryClientResources functions.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
