'Bigger Than Heartbleed': Bash Bug Could Leave IT Systems In Shellshock

Just months after Heartbleed made waves across the Internet, a new security flaw known as the Bash bug is threatening to compromise everything from major servers to connected cameras....

The vulnerability could affect Unix and Linux devices, as well as hardware running Mac OS X....

Scan your network for things like Telnet, FTP, and old versions of Apache (masscan is extremely useful for this). Anything that responds is probably an old device needing a Bash patch. And, since most of them can't be patched, you are likely screwed.

Routers running Linux can be affected. Look for a patch from the manufacturer.

Why do these security holes take so long to surface? UNIX is ancient.
