   An update that solves two vulnerabilities and has one
   errata is now available.


   bash has been updated to fix a critical security issue.

   In some circumstances, the shell would evaluate shellcode in environment
   variables passed at startup time. This allowed code execution by local or
   remote attackers who could pass environment variables to bash scripts.

   Additionally, the following bugs have been fixed:

       * Avoid possible buffer overflow when expanding the /dev/fd prefix
         with e.g. the test built-in. (CVE-2012-3410)
       * Enable workaround for changed behavior of sshd. (bnc#688469)

   Security Issues:

       * CVE-2014-6271
       * CVE-2012-3410

   - SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3 LTSS (i586 s390x x86_64):
