Bash Shellshock Flaw

Category : CyberSecurity , DataBreach

A serious flaw in a software component called Bash is said to be more
serious that the Heartbleed vulnerability that was disclosed earlier
this year. The flaw, which is being called Shellshock, can be exploited
to remotely take control of vulnerable systems. It affects an estimated
500 million UNIX and LINUX machines. Bash, or the GNU Bourne Again
Shell, is a command prompt on many Unix systems. The US Computer
Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) has issued a warning and is urging
admins to patch the flaw. Others have expressed concern that the patches
that have been made available are incomplete.
