@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice Correction, Android uses mksh (a Korn variant) not bash.

in reply to kw217 — 10:24pm Sep 25 2014 —

@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice Well yes, but they use bash as well. Ruling out bash for a particular invocation is nontrivial.

in reply to jpnKevin_T — 10:23pm Sep 25 2014 —

@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice Android *not* vulnerable, uses ash not bash.

in reply to kw217 — 10:20pm Sep 25 2014 —

RT @taviso: The bash patch seems incomplete to me, function parsing is still brittle. e.g. $ env X='() { (a)=>’ sh -c “echo date”; cat echo

10:10pm Sep 25 2014 —

@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice Yes, Chromebook has bash so is presumably vulnerable until Google patches it.

in reply to jpnKevin_T — 8:17pm Sep 25 2014 —

@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice Anything that runs bash. Linux yes, Mac yes, Windows probably no. Wondering about Android.

in reply to jpnKevin_T — 8:04pm Sep 25 2014 —

.@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice Hence you probably don’t want to connect your laptop to anyone’s Wi-Fi until you patch.

in reply to kw217 — 8:00pm Sep 25 2014 —

@jpnKevin_T @gmillard @ralphtice That’s not the issue here – the DHCP *server* provides code which executes on the *client*.
