Fixed In Version: bash-4.1.2-33.el6_7.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Due to the signal handler function calling certain signal-unsafe functions such as malloc(), the Bash shell in some cases became unresponsive after it received a signal. This update ensures that the signal handler no longer calls signal-unsafe functions, which prevents the described bug from occurring.
