Update bash (Ubuntu 10)

You must update bash to protect your Ubuntu 10 server against the ShellShock vulnerability.

  1. Connect to your server via SSH.
  2. Switch to the root user.
  3. Verify which version (32- or 64-bit) of Ubuntu you use by running the following command:
    uname -m
  4. Update bash by running one of the following commands, depending on your Ubuntu version:
    Ubuntu Version Command
    Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit
    curl -O http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/b/bash/bash_4.1-2ubuntu3.5_i386.deb && dpkg -i bash_4.1-2ubuntu3.5_i386.deb
    Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit
    curl -O http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/b/bash/bash_4.1-2ubuntu3.5_amd64.deb && dpkg -i bash_4.1-2ubuntu3.5_amd64.deb

Bash is now properly patched and updated on your server.
