3. Description:

The bash packages provide Bash (Bourne-again shell), which is the default
shell for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Security Fix(es):

* An arbitrary command injection flaw was found in the way bash processed
the hostname value. A malicious DHCP server could use this flaw to execute
arbitrary commands on the DHCP client machines running bash under specific
circumstances. (CVE-2016-0634)

* An arbitrary command injection flaw was found in the way bash processed
the SHELLOPTS and PS4 environment variables. A local, authenticated
attacker could use this flaw to exploit poorly written setuid programs to
elevate their privileges under certain circumstances. (CVE-2016-7543)

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way bash handled popd commands.
A poorly written shell script could cause bash to crash resulting in a
local denial of service limited to a specific bash session. (CVE-2016-9401)

Additional Changes:

Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.
