comment What is the CVE-2014-6271 bash vulnerability (Shellshock) and how do I fix it?
You mention 4.1-2ubuntu3.1 as safe, but 4.1-2ubuntu3.4 has been released fixing CVE-2014-7186 and CVE-2014-7187. See launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bash/4.1-2ubuntu3.4

comment How do I run specific sudo commands without a password?
The two lines refer specifically to these two commands. If user is not in other ways given sudo rights no other commands can be sudoed by this user. Have a look at man sudo and man sudoers.

comment What's the risk of upgrading over SSH?
After upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS (where do-release-upgrade did not start a screen session) I am now upgrading from 10.04 LTS to 12.04 LTS and now do-release-upgrade now starts a screen session automatically.

comment What's the risk of upgrading over SSH?
Do you know from which version of Ubuntu this has been the case? I am trying to upgrade from 9.10 and after starting the upgrade (sudo do-release-upgrade) and answering "Yes", I can connect to ssh on port 9004 but there are no screen sessions listed when trying sudo screen -list . (P.S. I am not past the download stage yet.)
