You will find lots of solutions for latest Ubuntu (14.xx) and for Ubuntu LTS versions like 10.04, 12.04, and 14.04, but for 12.10, a beautiful solution was provided by Digital Ocean Community. Special thanks to GD.
For easy reference, I copy-pasted the script lines below.

Run the below commands as root
mkdir src
cd src
#download all patches
for i in $(seq -f “%03g” 0 27); do wget$i; done
tar zxvf bash-4.3.tar.gz
cd bash-4.3
#apply all patches
for i in $(seq -f “%03g” 0 27);do patch -p0 < ../bash43-$i; done #build and install ./configure && make && make install cd .. cd .. rm -r src [/source] The actual source is at Digital Ocean community
