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

Low Nessus Plugin ID 100395

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.
