Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1311-01
Posted Sep 27, 2014
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1311-01 - The GNU Bourne Again shell is a shell and command language interpreter compatible with the Bourne shell. Bash is the default shell for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It was found that the fix for CVE-2014-6271 was incomplete, and Bash still allowed certain characters to be injected into other environments via specially crafted environment variables. An attacker could potentially use this flaw to override or bypass environment restrictions to execute shell commands. Certain services and applications allow remote unauthenticated attackers to provide environment variables, allowing them to exploit this issue.

3. Description:

The GNU Bourne Again shell (Bash) is a shell and command language
interpreter compatible with the Bourne shell (sh). Bash is the default
shell for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

It was found that the fix for CVE-2014-6271 was incomplete, and Bash still
allowed certain characters to be injected into other environments via
specially crafted environment variables. An attacker could potentially use
this flaw to override or bypass environment restrictions to execute shell
commands. Certain services and applications allow remote unauthenticated
attackers to provide environment variables, allowing them to exploit this
issue. (CVE-2014-7169)

Applications which directly create Bash functions as environment variables
need to be made aware of the changes to the way names are handled by this
update. For more information see the Knowledgebase article at
https://access.redhat.com/articles/1200223

Note: Docker users are advised to use "yum update" within their containers,
and to commit the resulting changes.

For additional information on CVE-2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169, refer to the
aforementioned Knowledgebase article.

All bash users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
