comment ShellShock - bash already updated?
"Bash doesn't just 'terminate' when you close your terminal - its still active in background..." This is not true. What happens is that there are other processes still using instances of the old version of Bash. When you close/reopen your terminal, you're launching a fresh copy of (the now patched) Bash. There is not some single master copy of Bash running somewhere. However, you are correct that a system restart will purge all the old Bash instances.
