Security fixedit

When previous versions of Kibana 5 are configured for SSL client access, file descriptors will fail to be cleaned up after certain requests and will accumulate over time until the process crashes. Requests that are canceled before data is sent can also crash the process. ESA-2017-02 (#10225)
