Updated ksh packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat EnterpriseLinux 6.5 Extended Update Support.

KornShell (KSH) is a Unix shell developed by AT&T Bell Laboratories, which isbackward-compatible with the Bourne shell (Bash) and includes many features ofthe C shell. The most recent version is KSH-93. KornShell complies with thePOSIX.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 touse or unset. This updated version filters variables duringinitialization, 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#1195647) Users of ksh are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thisbug.
