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.

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.
