The bash zero day – not that dangerous imho

Bash is not a comic superhero, but a shell that even apple users have.  It runs on Linux like systems and i use one every day being an linux ape.

Now i have patched our servers but i disagree that its horridly dangerous.  This screenshot is from debian testing and you will see that i am unpatched on one box thus i am a ‘target’  Firstly i don’t get that many people who can actually login* [seen with this] and secondly once in can i do a system admin type thing.

I adjusted the one line vector and was asked for a password.

Sure if your an idiot it might be a horrid hole** but as mine asked me to validate i see little damage.  Some seem to forget that monitoring tools do exist.
