In case you weren't aware (and we doubt you weren't unless you were on an extended Internet free vacation) there is a major vulnerability impacting websites that rely on Unix and Linux. Shellshock is particulary nasty.
We'll let Krebs on Secuity explain;
The bug is being compared to the recent Heartbleed vulnerability because of its ubiquity and sheer potential for causing havoc on Internet-connected systems — particularly Web sites. Worse yet, experts say the official patch for the security hole is incomplete and could still let attackers seize control over vulnerable systems.
While this is a major security issue, the fix using Ansible isn't. Check out the tweets below!
