New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 4.4

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.

Solution

Update the affected bash packages.
