And it's the developers of all those packages and distros that symlink /bin/sh to bash instead of something minimal and well-audited that we should be screaming at. But "remote root exploit in bash" is sexier (after all, Apple doesn't put procmail on every Mac) so that's what goes in the headline.
 
...and next time someone goes on a rant about systemd versus "the Unix way", remember that daemons passing input from the network to /bin/sh is part of "the Unix way".

Mr. Wong, with all due respect (that's not much for the record). Horse. Fucking. Shit.

  If you make a rule against X (and ban X-related subreddits) but not rules against Y and Z, you're making a moral statement that Y and Z are more acceptable than X. There's just no other coherent reading of those rules. If you're trying to make a community where bestiality and racism are considered morally better than leaked celebrity nudes, that's fine - it's your site, but have the spine to fucking own it.
