The Shellshock-Bash Bug Security Vulnerability

The Shellshock-Bash Bug Security Vulnerability

Here are the basics of the Shellshock-Bash Bug Security Vulnerability:

  • It affects more machines than the Heartbleed issue did
  • It is significantly harder to exploit than Heartbleed was

Bash has been a part of Unix-derived systems for more than 20 years, with this vulnerability just recently discovered. There is a very good overview of the issue on the ABC News website:
