    Already updated bash on my servers. I wonder if Apple or the Mac community are really that effected?

    Think Bash is the default on Macs

    or does Apple include their own iteration ... iBash? ;) I would assume for the vulnerability to work, they'd need an open port (http:80?) and http services enabled. :dontknow:

    Thanks for posting this. I was unaware of it.

    Seems like they might be using a rather outdated version of bash...

    version.h (Bash 3.2.51)

    Current is 4.3.24

    I patched last night... sometimes Canonical does do things right.


    *** Edit: Hrm, just updated again.

    Do you have yours set to update automatically? I don't. I like to see, and perhaps pick and choose, what's on tap to be updated.

    Same results here in the same order. Oh wait, you run the premier distro too, should have known we'd have similar findings.

    ...ducks for cover...

    :vroam:







    I kid, I kid. No distro wars please. :D

    No, I get alerts, and pick and choose which updates I want to install. Otherwise, I'd be forever uninstalling bad updates.

    Pay attention to your ongoing system update notifications, *buntu folks. I've now had bash updates three days in a row.
