bash vulnerability; patch your *n*x boxes A.S.A.P. (via: CERT/NIST reveal level 10 bash alert today, 24 September 2014)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/25

Unpatched bash allows for remote code execution.

Patch as soon as you can and be aware that the current patches might not be complete.

Many vendors (including Debian, Red Hat, SuSE, Ubuntu) already have patches available: CERT/NIST reveal level 10 bash alert today, 24 September 2014.

This is a long article which explains the why/how/… and has an easy check to see if you are vulnerable: What is the CVE-2014-6271 bash vulnerability and, how do I fix it.

It looks like the current patches aren’t complete yet, but do plug big parts of the hole.

Watch bash CVEs in Ubuntu and CVE-2014-7169 in Ubuntu (and maybe for other nx varieties as well).

  1. Not a video, but a good starter: Guide: Writing Testable Code (or read the PDF version).
  2. 0:32:07 ▶ “The Clean Code Talks — Unit Testing” – YouTube.
  3. 0:37:56 ▶ The Clean Code Talks – Don’t Look For Things! – YouTube. Read the rest of this entry »
