“Shell Shock Bash” vulnerability on your server

On September 24th, a vulnerability was reported in the GNU Bourne-Again-Shell (BASh, or Bash), specifically a flaw with how Bash processes values of environment variables, that allows remote code execution of varying types in many common configurations. The overall risk is severe due to bash being configured for use, by default, on most Linux servers.

It means that if the servers are rebooted the server’s OS will not work because its partition is destroyed. We first tired to fix it but it seems not possible. Now we are in the process of migrating the VPS containers as well as the shared hosting accounts out of their respective servers.
