The Shellshock vulnerability, first discovered by Akamai researcher Stephane Chazelas, has been given a maximum severity rating of 10/10 from NIST. And security experts are urging Linux and UNIX admins to drop everything and patch a critical software vulnerability found in the extensively used Bash (the Bourne Again SHell), dubbed ‘worse’ than the now infamous Heartbleed flaw.Worryingly, a DDoS bot spotted in the wild exploiting the issue, has already been reported.

This one-hour panel session will bring together industry experts to dissect the Shellshock vulnerability, explain what it is, consider its impact, and offer tangible advice on what information security professionals should be doing to secure their organizations and minimize Shellshock’s potential impact.
