Log Message:
Update socat to


        fixed a stack overflow vulnerability that occurred when command
        line arguments (whole addresses, host names, file names) were longer
        than 512 bytes.
        Note that this could only be exploited when an attacker was able to
        inject data into socat's command line.
        Full credits to Felix Grobert, Google Security Team, for finding and
        reporting this issue
