Re: The many eyes of open source missed this one
This sort of thing makes me glad that I went through the Windows server hassles, instead of using Linux.

Thanks Dark Reading for a great article.

Re: The many eyes of open source missed this one
one thing the open source/free software community doesn't deal well with is the fact that just because you have access to the source code doesn't mean you can do anything with it.

Re: The many eyes of open source missed this one
This is very alarming. My team is trying to see if we can use our vulnerability scanner to weed out this instance within our environment. With the internet of things, this will be a daunting task because we are not entirely certain what is leveraging these bash versions.

Has anyone definitively planned an inititivate to efficiently pull this data and mitigate effectively? If so, what steps are you taking? (At a high level, doesn't need to be granular)

SCADA systems might have a big problem here.
Although I do not maintain any SCADA systems, it occured to me last night as I patched my server environments that the Shellshock bug may have substantial impact on SCADA relevant systems.  I'm sure a SCADA security or administration expert would have more info in this regard.  I hope I am wrong in this assumption, but I get the sense otherwise.

The many eyes of open source missed this one
This is a serious bug that apparantly has been around almost as long as Bash itself, since version 1.3 or 22 years. Whew. It's one that has eluded the rule that "the many eyes of open source code inspecition" will find all bugs.
