ShellShock's Payload Leads to Malware
Shellshock exploded on the scene last week, making headlines in major newspapers and security blogs. Shellshock is a security hole in the Unix/Linux “Bash” Shell. Bash is a command processor that typically runs in a text window, allowing the user to type commands which cause actions. For the non-Linux/UNIX users among us, it is roughly equivalent to cmd.exe (Windows) or command.com (DOS). So, generally not the place to go if you love using a mouse.
