Apple has released the
OS X Bash Update 1.0
for OS X
, a patch that fixes the "Shellshock" bug in the Bash shell. Bash, which is the default shell for many Linux-based operating systems, has been updated two times to fix the bug, and many Linux distributions have already issued updates to their users. When installed on an OS X Mavericks system, the patch upgrades the Bash shell from version 3.2.51 to version 3.2.53. The update requires the OS X 10.9.5, 10.8.5, or 10.7.5 updates to be installed on the system first.
An Apple representative told Ars Technica
that OS X Yosemite, the upcoming version of OS X, will receive the patch later.
