Happy Friday, Federal Friends! Having a relatively quiet week? Just looking forward to a quiet end to FY14? Riiiiiiiiight, same here....
Most of you probably had an interesting 2nd half of the week just as we are. Like a judge at the Olympics, DHS has scored this little diddy a 10 out of 10 both in impact and how easy it is to use this vuln to run an exploit. While this doesn't have the "world-is-ending" feel that Heartbleed did it is still very serious, with potential long-term impact. This story is literally everywhere so I won't load you up with too many links, but below I have listed 3 tips I saw on a lil blurb on MarketWatch earlier today. The tips are simple enough to follow for now, and as the impact of Shellshock/Bash is better understood make sure to check in with your vendors regarding patches etc. I also included links that we have put out regarding Nexpose & Metasploit. If you have any further questions please reach out to our amazing Support Team, or your respective Account Manager.
- Download security updates.
- Look for notifications from service providers that may have been hacked.
- Change your password if someone tells you to.
I wonder what the Bash Brothers, of Mighty Ducks fame, would think about today's Bash Bug? I'll bet they give the same look as I did on Wednesday...
