This update for bash fixes the following issues :
- CVE-2016-7543: Local attackers could have executed
arbitrary commands via specially crafted SHELLOPTS+PS4
- CVE-2016-0634: Malicious hostnames could have allowed
arbitrary command execution when $HOSTNAME was expanded
in the prompt. (bsc#1000396) The following bugs were
- bsc#971410: Scripts could terminate unexpectedly due to
mishandled recursive traps.
- bsc#959755: Clarify that the files /etc/profile as well
as /etc/bash.bashrc may source other files as well even
if the bash does not.

description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
