Thanks Michal, good to know :)

You have a new patch (, I am sure many wonders what CVE is this for? 
This looks to be related to CVE-2014-7186 ("here document" but the correction is in make_cmd.c
Is this a new vulnerability?

But Florian's unofficial patch or its upstream version (bash43-027 & co)  mitigates *ALL* these six so far known CVE, right?
