Blog Post created by Maria Varmazis Employee on Sep 25, 2014

On this Very Special Whiteboard Wednesday, we bring you a video on a Thursday because, well, #bashbug happened. Thankfully the sky is not falling.bbug.png


In this bashbug-edition of Whiteboard Wednesday, we discuss common attack vectors that could be used to exploit this vulnerability, exactly how this vulnerability compares to Heartbleed (if at all), and possible mitigating techniques—including, but not exclusively, the ever-relevant "patch, patch, patch!"


We've received a number of questions today about our products and what we're doing to help you detect this vulnerability in your environment. We're continually posting new information and making updates, so keep an eye here on SecurityStreet for new blogs, and make sure to visit for a comprehensive list of bashbug resources that we've posted.
