by RLiegh (#47990981) Attached to: Remote Exploit Vulnerability Found In Bash

I updated Linux Mint x86 and tried it:

rl@home ~ $ env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c "echo this is a test"
bash: warning: x: ignoring function definition attempt
bash: error importing function definition for `x'
this is a test
rl@home ~ $

I'm gonna assume that means the version they just pushed out is fixed...

Bull-fucking-shit.

Pedant fail. The basis for OS X was NeXTSTEP, and the basis for NeXTSTEP was BSD.

BSD what...4.2? 4.3? Far before FreeBSD.

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Have you considered switching to fucking decaf? Then you might notice that operating systems are more than just a kernel.

No shit! But that doesn't change that using a modicrum of FreeBSD code in your utilities doesn't make your OS a "fork" of FreeBSD.
Y'all used to know better, now you don't.

BSD ain't dying -but I sure can't say the same for Slashdot...
