Thanks for pointing that out, I should have highlighted that in my note. We will likely do a follow-up ISO when that occurs. Since we don't have control over that timeframe, it could be later today or could be further out. You may end-up burning a couple ISOs in close succession if something close to the former is the case. As usual, we'll do our best to keep everyone posted.

Hi all,
it is also very likely that there will be a followup patch coming soon, as the first one seems to have been incomplete.

Hi all,
Yesterday CentOS announced a critical bash vulnerability (see Jason's note that was sent to the perfSONAR lists copied below). We now have new LiveCDs and LiveUSBs available for users of those installation types at
As Jason noted yesterday, users of the NetInstall can simply run 'yum update' to get the new fixes. Also, since we almost always get asked in situations like this, if you are planning to do a new NetInstall but notice that the NetInstall ISO was not updated, that is because it will grab the latest packages at install time automatically. In other words, it will just work and you will get all the latest stuff, no new ISO required. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Thank you,
