CVE-2014-6278 at MITRE

Description

GNU Bash through 4.3 bash43-026 does not properly parse function definitions in the values of environment variables, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a crafted environment, as demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand feature in OpenSSH sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache HTTP Server, scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other situations in which setting the environment occurs across a privilege boundary from Bash execution. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-6271, CVE-2014-7169, and CVE-2014-6277.

Note from the SUSE Security Team

This issue is already mitigated (fixed) by the function hardening patch introduced in the update for CVE-2014-7169. We are currently not able to reproduce this at all on SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 or older, so likely bash 3.2 seems not to be affected.
