[slackware-security] bluez (SSA:2017-258-01)

New bluez packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, 14.2,
and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/bluez-5.47-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed an information disclosure vulnerability which allows remote attackers
to obtain sensitive information from the bluetoothd process memory. This
vulnerability lies in the processing of SDP search attribute requests.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
