shellshock2A serious vulnerability in the Unix Bash shell used on Linux systems, Apple OS X machines, routers and older connected (IoT) devices was announced yesterday.

As with the Heartbleed virus earlier this year, our infrastructure team has applied security patches to all Phone.com systems that use Bash, thereby preventing unauthorized access to our service and your data.
