This isn't strictly Koha related, but very important to be aware of
nonetheless. There's a recently announced vulnerability in bash in Linux
which is remotely exploitable.

Some references:

I'm not aware of any way that Koha makes this easier to exploit, but I
wouldn't be surprised to find that there is one somewhere. So go run
your security updates. Also keep an eye on them over the next couple of
days, I wouldn't be surprised to find a better-fixed version coming out
in the near future.
