Dear valued customers,
 
Our Security team has detected a massive vulnerability on bash shell files for Linux, Unix and Apple System.
 
IMPACT:
This vulnerability is classified by industry standards as “High” on impact with CVSS Impact Subscore 10 and “Low” on complexity, which means it takes little skill to perform. This flaw allows attackers to provide specially crafted environment variables containing arbitrary commands that can be executed on vulnerable systems. It is especially dangerous because of the prevalent use of the Bash shell and its ability to be called by an application in numerous ways.
 
SOLUTION:
Immediately patching on your system bash software package to the latest version.
US-CERT recommends system administrators to review the vendor patches and the NIST Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2014-7169, to mitigate damage caused by the exploit.
