Shellshock

CVE 2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169, known as “Shellshock” in the media, affects Linux, OS X, and Unix systems that use any version of Bash 4.3 and lower. The Bash shell is one of several different command shells used with Unix and is also a way to invoke scripts. What makes Shellshock unique is the impact it could have on the security of the Internet and the difficulty in detecting all attack vectors. In short, Shellshock’s effect could be similar to Heartbleed’s impact.
