Description

LSAC(v2)
KornShell (KSH) is a Unix shell developed by AT&T Bell Laboratories, which is backward-compatible with the Bourne shell (Bash) and includes many features of the C shell. The most recent version is KSH-93. KornShell complies with the POSIX.2 standard (IEEE Std 1003.2-1992). This update fixes the following bug: * Previously, the ksh shell did not filter environment variables it inherited. As a result, the ksh environment contained variables that ksh was not able to use or unset. This updated version filters variables during initialization, and thus no longer inherits variables that are invalid for ksh. As a result, ksh functions can now use all variables present in the environment. (BZ#1195655) Users of ksh are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
