Shellshock / bash vulnerability

There's been a lot written about this already so not going to say too much more but posting so I can keep a collection of links together and point people to it. It does warrant you changing your schedule and go patch things quickly.

The original vulnerability can be found at CVE-2014-6271.

Unfortunately the vulnerability and fix wasn't complete so if you patched you may need to go and patch again. Details of this updated vulnerability can be found at CVE-2014-7169

Here is Ubuntu Linux advisory. You need to be on bash 4.3-7ubuntu1.3 or higher
