We study the viscous and inviscid stability of shock waves in barotropic and full magnetohydrodynamics. We show that there are magnetohydrodynamic shock waves that are one-dimensionally stable as viscous shock profiles while they are multidimensionally strongly unstable as planar shock discontinuities. © 2008 Elsevier B.V.
