The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
The command-line shell 'bash' evaluates environment variables, which
allows the injection of characters and might be used to access files
on the system in some circumstances. (CVE-2014-7169)
Please note that this issue is different from a previously fixed
vulnerability tracked under CVE-2014-6271 and is less serious due to
the special, non-default system configuration that is needed to create
an exploitable situation.
To remove further exploitation potential we now limit the
function-in-environment variable to variables prefixed with
BASH_FUNC_. This hardening feature is work in progress and might be
improved in later updates.
Additionally, two other security issues have been fixed :
- Nested HERE documents could lead to a crash of bash.
- Nesting of for loops could lead to a crash of bash.
