    Tavis Ormandy discovered that the patch applied to fix CVE-2014-6271
    released in DSA-3032-1 for bash, the GNU Bourne-Again Shell, was
    incomplete and could still allow some characters to be injected into
    another environment (CVE-2014-7169). With this update prefix and suffix
    for environment variable names which contain shell functions are added
    as hardening measure.
    
    Additionally two out-of-bounds array accesses in the bash parser are
    fixed which were revealed in Red Hat's internal analysis for these
    issues and also independently reported by Todd Sabin.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2+dfsg-0.1+deb7u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bash packages.
