Debian DLA-63-1 : bash security update

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 82208

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Tavis Ormandy discovered that the patch applied to fix CVE-2014-6271 released in DSA-3032-1 for bash, the GNU Bourne-Again Shell, was incomplete and could still allow some characters to be injected into another environment (CVE-2014-7169). With this update prefix and suffix for environment variable names which contain shell functions are added as hardening measure.

Additionally two out-of-bounds array accesses in the bash parser are fixed which were revealed in Red Hat's internal analysis for these issues and also independently reported by Todd Sabin.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
