Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0725-01 - The bash packages provide Bash, which is the default shell for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Security Fix: An arbitrary command injection flaw was found in the way bash processed the hostname value. A malicious DHCP server could use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands on the DHCP client machines running bash under specific circumstances. An arbitrary command injection flaw was found in the way bash processed the SHELLOPTS and PS4 environment variables. A local, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to exploit poorly written setuid programs to elevate their privileges under certain circumstances.

3. Description:

The bash packages provide Bash (Bourne-again shell), which is the default
shell for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Security Fix(es):

* An arbitrary command injection flaw was found in the way bash processed
the hostname value. A malicious DHCP server could use this flaw to execute
arbitrary commands on the DHCP client machines running bash under specific
circumstances. (CVE-2016-0634)

* An arbitrary command injection flaw was found in the way bash processed
the SHELLOPTS and PS4 environment variables. A local, authenticated
attacker could use this flaw to exploit poorly written setuid programs to
elevate their privileges under certain circumstances. (CVE-2016-7543)

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way bash handled popd commands.
A poorly written shell script could cause bash to crash resulting in a
local denial of service limited to a specific bash session. (CVE-2016-9401)

Additional Changes:
