openSUSE Security Update : bash (openSUSE-2017-614)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update for bash fixes an issue that could lead to syntax errors
when parsing scripts that use expr(1) inside loops.

Additionally, the popd build-in now ensures that the normalized stack
offset is within bounds before trying to free that stack entry. This
fixes a segmentation fault.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP2:Update update
project.
