Bash bug: Shellshocked yet? You will be ... when this goes WORM


Re: Oh $!#t.

This won't be a huge future problem for dynamic content on web servers, since they will be patched readily. Most have probably already been patched. The problem is that CGI is used in the web interface of many current devices, such as routers, switches, security cameras, etc. It will be months before all of these are patched. Still, those sort of devices are not usually directly accessible from the internet. I don't look for this to be a huge problem going forward. I worry about the fact that this bug has been in place for decades. Has someone been exploiting this for decades without detection?
