Our staff is aware of this dangerous exploit. We are extensively monitoring all of our customers servers while we wait for patches to be released.

GNU Bash through 4.3 processes trailing strings after function definitions in the values of environment variables, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted environment, as demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand feature in OpenSSH sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache HTTP Server, scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other situations in which setting the environment occurs across a privilege boundary from Bash execution, aka "ShellShock." NOTE: the original fix for this issue was incorrect; CVE-2014-7169 has been assigned to cover the vulnerability that is still present after the incorrect fix.

UPDATE: We are pleased to let our customers know that during this time, none of our customers' servers was compromised or exploited. Part of our security hardening standards help minimized most of the danger! Our support staff did have to do a few reboots after the patches was posted and reposted.
