The “at” packages provide the “at” and “batch” commands, which are used to readcommands from standard input or from a specified file. The “at” command allowsyou to specify that a command will be run at a particular time. The “batch”command will execute commands when the system load levels drop to a particularlevel. Both commands use /bin/sh.This update fixes the following bug:* Due to a security issue fix in Bash, “at” jobs failed to run because the “atd”daemon exported environment variables with an incorrect syntax to the Bash shellrunning the jobs. With this update, “atd” filters out environment variables thatcannot be parsed by the Bash shell, thus allowing the “at” jobs to run properly.(BZ#1149363)Users of at are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thisbug.
