Digication's response to ShellShock

Dear Digication Community,

As you may be aware, last week a new worldwide vulnerability was discovered which can affect many web-based systems using Linux, Unix and Mac OS X operating systems. This vulnerability is known as the Bash Bug or ShellShock. The vulnerability affects Bash, a common component known as a shell that appears in many versions of these operating systems.

Digication took immediate steps to address this situation and all production and staging servers were upgraded with a fixed version of Bash on Friday, September 26th. After a security review we have found no evidence of malicious behavior or breaches to our servers.

Digication users do not need to take any action.
