The logical progression.
Unfortunately, this is just the next logical step in the progression of the Bashlite malware.  I can forsee this piece of malware being further adapted in the future to include many nastier options.

DroidNet - Android use of BusyBox
Here's your next article - do some digging on the net. - how many flavors of Adroid use BusyBox - percentage of Android platforms that don't need to be rooted for BusyBox - buy a cheap throwaway android phone and see how easy it can be exploited - realize that if this all works, the last step will explain the potential scale of the threat - last step, run some numbers on how many android phones around the world are running with data connections on cell bands. Birth of the DroidNet? #DroidNet #BotNet

Really Shellshock?
I am not seeing how Shellshock is being used to gain control of the busybox system. Is the article correct? The beginning of the article makes the claim: "Researchers at Trend Micro are warning that a new version of the Bashlite malware is using the ShellShock vulnerability (CVE-2014-6271) to gain control of devices using BusyBox." But then describes a simple telnet login, which THEN grabs Shellshock worm code, perhaps to continue on and propagate itself.  Seems a little misleading.  Am I missing something here?

Scan before download
This just reinforces the idea that you need to scan your files before downloading them over the Internet for the most current ELF process. Security operations need to be even more vigilant now because variants are becoming even more manipulative and easier from a compromise standpoint. Patching against shellshock is critical and if you do not practice due diligence, you could be responsible for your organzations loss in data as well as other malicious events.
