Because of the Shell Shock bug I need to make updates on some of our machines.
But I am not sure if all of the packages suggested in
apt-get upgrade are OK for my system. In other words I am not sure if there are any dependencies.
Our system administrator is not here yet and we cannot contact him.
So my question is, how can I only
apt-get upgrade the security updates, without having to update everything to the newest available version in debian stable?
apt-get install --only-upgrade bash did the thing for me.
On one of our servers, there was still just Debian Squeeze installed.
Changing squeeze to wheezy in
/etc/apt/sources.list and then running:
apt-get install --only-upgrade bash
installed the fixed bash into this older squeeze system.
