Subject: CVE-2011-2524: libsoup's SoupServer directory traversal flaw

Hello everyone.  Just a heads up to advise about a directory traversal
flaw in libsoup's SoupServer.  This flaw could allow any service linked
to libsoup and using SoupServer to have a remote user traverse the local
file system and expose unintended files.
