If I post something erroneous please tell me so I can fix it and learn from the error.

I'm currently developing a voxel game called Mosstest in Java as a learning exercise.

I can be contacted by email at obsessivefoss@gmail.com, if one is interested in my work. Please do not email asking for free help. I'll be glad to help for a fair rate in Bitcoin.

@daveshaw I would recommend creating a separate answer about the security-proposed ppa.

@matth can you show a source, article, or demo to show that it is actually vulnerable? I've seen many articles indicating the contrary.

@don.joey it simply sets the environment variable called x to the value '() { :;}; echo vulnerable'. It then invokes bash asking it to echo back the word hello. The value of x that is set is a function definition that should do nothing. However, it is crafted to try to run 'echo vulnerable' at parsing of environment at bash start-up, which just prints vulnerable to standard out.

@Michael as long as you have a backport repository enabled in software sources you should get a fixed version that addresses the first CVE. The second that was reported has not had a fix released yet.
