Red Hat: Updated libsoup packages fix one security issue

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. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
