This bug is exploitable by a malicious DHCP server (e.g. WiFi hotspot) and can completely pwn your computer, so it's worth fixing ASAP. Other answers have better instruction for replacing /bin/bash and /bin/sh that will likely cause fewer problems than upgrading to Brew's latest bash.

comment Macbook Pro crashes when I remove power while hibernated
@bmike Filing bug reports with Apple when you're not a developer seems like a waste of time in general, and especially when you are using a feature like hibernate 25 that is explicitly "not supported".

Right, but you set standby 0 thus setting STANDBY to OFF, so standby will not hibernate the machine regardless of the hibernate mode.

Setting hibernate mode 25 does not set the laptop to hibernate automatically, it just sets the behavior when SafeSleep is called for, which is normally triggered by going into standby. I can't shake the feeling that you solved the problem by turning off standby and preventing your laptop from ever hibernating as well as preventing it from ever waking automatically.
