  • patches/packages/bash-4.1.012-x86_64-1_slack13.1.txz
    This update fixes a vulnerability in bash related to how environment
    variables are processed: trailing code in function definitions was
    executed, independent of the variable name. In many common configurations
    (such as the use of CGI scripts), this vulnerability is exploitable over
    the network. Thanks to Stephane Chazelas for discovering this issue.
