Updated libsoup packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

libsoup is an HTTP client/library implementation for GNOME.

A directory traversal flaw was found in libsoup's SoupServer. If an
application used SoupServer to implement an HTTP service, a remote
attacker who is able to connect to that service could use this flaw to
access any local files accessible to that application via a specially
crafted request. (CVE-2011-2524)

All users of libsoup should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. All running
applications using libsoup's SoupServer must be restarted for the
update to take effect."
