Problem description

Updated boost packages fix security vulnerability:

A security flaw was found in the way ordered_malloc() routine
implementation in Boost, the free peer-reviewed portable C++
source libraries, performed 'next-size' and 'max_size' parameters
sanitization, when allocating memory. If an application, using
the Boost C++ source libraries for memory allocation, was missing
application-level checks for safety of 'next_size' and 'max_size'
values, a remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted
application-specific file (requiring runtime memory allocation it to be
processed correctly) that, when opened would lead to that application
crash, or, potentially arbitrary code execution with the privileges
of the user running the application (CVE-2012-2677).

Boost.Locale library in Boost 1.48 to 1.52 including has a security
flaw (CVE-2013-0252): boost::locale::utf::utf_traits accepted some
invalid UTF-8 sequences. Applications that used these functions for
UTF-8 input validation could expose themselves to security threats
as invalid UTF-8 sequece would be considered as valid.

The package has been patched to fix above security flaw.
