On September 24, researchers revealed a new vulnerability bug, Shellshock. NSO is staying up to date on this threat.
Shellshock is a hole in Bash (Bourne Again Shell), a piece of software in many Unix-based operating systems, including Linux and Apple's OS X. Bash is a shell, a type of program that lets users command their computers. The Shellshock vulnerability could allow an arbitrary piece of code to be processed and executed on an impacted server computer.
NetSource One is aware of the recently-noted "Shellshock" vulnerability in the Unix Bourne-again shell (Bash). We have been tracking the Bash vulnerability since the original announcement on the 24th and working with all the vendors of devices that we support. This vulnerability affects Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X computers, and devices that implement a form of the Bash utility that allows remote user input.
The good news is that most of our customers' systems are Windows-based and not vulnerable. Vendors are still trying to identify the scope of the vulnerability, and we are diligently working with them to remediate any exposure that you have.
