This is so new, it’s barely made the headlines. Rather than rehash in a new article, I am going to link to the wired.com and bbc articles regarding this brand new threat – Shellshock – that is purported to be a 10 of 10 on the danger Richter scale for computers worldwide. While the last major issue was heartbleed – said to have potentially affected over 500 thousand machines worldwide, “Shellshock could hit at least 500 million machines.”
Please see the articles above for details. Please also know that shortly after this vulnerability was released, Monterey Bay Design’s servers were patched within minutes. Server management will keep on top of the situation and I will update details as necessary.
