    Package        : bash
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-6271
    
    Stephane Chazelas discovered a vulnerability in bash, the GNU
    Bourne-Again Shell, related to how environment variables are
    processed.  In many common configurations, this vulnerability is
    exploitable over the network, especially if bash has been configured
    as the system shell.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.2+dfsg-0.1+deb7u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bash packages.
