[slackware-security]  mcabber (SSA:2016-347-02)

New mcabber packages are available for Slackware 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/loudmouth-1.5.3-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update is needed for the mcabber security update.
patches/packages/mcabber-1.0.4-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue which can lead to a malicious actor
  MITMing a conversation, or adding themselves as an entity on a third
  parties roster (thereby granting themselves the associated priviledges
  such as observing when the user is online).
  For more information, see:
    https://gultsch.de/gajim_roster_push_and_message_interception.html
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2016-9928
  (* Security fix *)
