Just months after Heartbleed, which shook the Internet harder than anything before, new security vulnerability known as Bash or Shellshock is threatening to compromise online security once again. A careful audit of ISL Online confirms the remote desktop software is not affected by the Bash bug.
What is the Bash Bug?
The Bash bug is a major threat related to Bash, a computer program widely installed on computers around the world. According to CNET, the quarter-century-old security flaw allows malicious code execution within the bash shell to take over an operating system, access confidential information, make changes, etc. More information on the Bash bug can be found in the open-source software company Red Hat’s security blog.
