Topic: Shellshock and NIONs
As many people know, the NION series of products all use Linux on the host processor that provides the background management for the DSP's in the system. You may have heard something about the ShellShock vulnerability that existed in the BASH shell of Linux.
To be extremely clear: This vulnerability does exist in all NIONs with firmware 1.7.1 and earlier.
It has been fixed in all newer versions.
If you are using a NION with an older version of firmware and you would like to patch your system against this vulnerability, please download the attached file: NION_ShellShock_Patch.zip, unzip it, and follow the instructions in the ReadMe file for details on how to update your NION to remove the vulnerability. It is easy to do since it is just like updating the firmware in the NION.
Please post any questions or concerns about this subject in this thread.
