Overview

A recently discovered hole in the security of the Bourne-Again Shell (bash) has the majority of Unix/Linux (including OS X) admins sweating bullets. You should be, too - attackers are actively exploiting the vulnerability on un-patched web servers, network services and daemons that use shell scripts with environment variables (this can include network equipment, industrial devices, etc.). So, what can you do to protect your environment?

Join us for a live demo covering:

  • Insights on how attackers are exploiting this vulnerability
  • Practical tips to minimize your exposure to attack
  • How AlienVault USM can detect the bash vulnerability, and alert you of active attacks
