Yes. More info here - https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-2014-7169

No. From https://access.redhat.com/articles/1200223

Do I need to reboot or restart services after installing this update?

No, a reboot of your system or any of your services is not required. 
This vulnerability is in the initial import of the process environment 
from the kernel. This only happens when Bash is started. After the 
update that fixes this issue is installed, such new processes will use 
the new code, and will not be vulnerable. Conversely, old processes will 
not be started again, so the vulnerability does not materialize.
