Shellshock / Bash Virus

This is an FYI on the Shellshock virus that's in the news today. In a nutshell, your Mac-based desktops and laptops should be safe from this.

You can read more details on C|Net.
"Bash, a UNIX command shell and language included in OS X, has a weakness that could allow unauthorized users to remotely gain control of vulnerable systems," Apple said. "With OS X, systems are safe by default and not exposed to remote exploits of bash unless users configure advanced UNIX services. We are working to quickly provide a software update for our advanced UNIX users."
