Firestarter: Hulk bashBy Rich
Mike, Adrian, and I start off a little rough around the edges, but eventually get to the point. Travel is taking its toll so we won’t be able to keep our usual weekly schedule, but we will stay as close as possible – until I run off to Amsterdam for a week, for Black Hat Europe. We catch up on the inane for a few minutes, before jumping into a discussion of the
bash vulnerability and disclosure debacle. We agree it is often valuable to analyze an event after the initial shock waves (See what I did there? Shellshock? Shock waves?). Today we focus on the deeper implications and how the heck a disclosure could be so bungled. Plus a little advice on where to focus your patching efforts.
