[slackware-security] bash (SSA:2014-267-01)

New bash packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/bash-4.2.048-i486-1_slack14.1.txz: Upgraded.
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.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
