While this can seem completely obsolete, I still have machines running bash 2.05b (Debian etch). I worry about upgrading to bash 3.x because of some backward compatibility issue. It there any reason why there was no patch for bash 2.05b ? The test command below show that the bug also affect this version:

j$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i386-pc-linux-gnu)

j$ env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c "echo this is a test"
this is a test
