[slackware-security] blueman (SSA:2018-213-01)

New blueman packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/blueman-2.0.6-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes an issue where blueman-mechanism did not enforce the
polkit action 'org.blueman.network.setup' for which a polkit policy is
shipped. This meant that any user with access to the D-Bus system bus was
able to access the related API without authentication. The result was an
unspecified impact on the networking stack.
Thanks to Matthias Gerstner for discovering this issue.
(* Security fix *)
