Here's the CHANGES-current entry: 2014/09/25 Package: bash SECURITY FIX Severity: none to high, remote, active Updated to 3.1 patchlevel 18. This fixes a vulnerability with function imports, which could in many setups be exploited remotely.

Please note that Owl-current is undergoing some invasive updates now, so there are some inconsistencies between its source tree and the currently available binary packages (for some other packages, not for bash), most of which haven't been rebuilt yet. We'll take care of producing proper binary builds with all of these other updates shortly. Also, please note that the Owl 3.0-stable branch is about to be EOL'ed, in favor of the 3.1-stable branch forked from Owl-current just prior to the invasive changes mentioned above. Please excuse the mess. Alexander
