Description

Updated bash (1.x) packages for Red Hat Linux 5.x and 6.x, fixing a security problem, are available.

The << operator in bash 1.x used predictable filenames, leading to a potential denial of service attack. A local user account is required to exploit the security leak.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-bash
