comment What is the CVE-2014-6271 bash vulnerability (Shellshock) and how do I fix it?
oops, sorry I just realised I put bash instead of dash in the test. Never mind it's fine.

Ok so the issue is, that after the function definition it should stop parsing. But bash continues executing arbitrary commands if vulnerable. The test is this: env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c "echo this is a test" outputs "vulnerable this is a test" on my copy of dash. Ubuntu 12.04.

Dash is doing the same thing for me.

I notice that dash is also vulnerable! dash is the default shell /bin/sh used by cgi etc. I'm not sure if dash is based on dash but it's has the same exploit.

comment Can we have both 32 bit & 64 bit architecture on a single machine
Suggest you reinstall a 64-bit version. There are very few apps that need 32bit.

It is possible only if you upgrade your kernel to a 64bit kernel and install all the 64bit libraries across. Pretty much no. You should have installed the 64bit version. I'm assuming you have 64bit CPU ? If not, you're not going to be able to.

comment Where is the synergy configuration file?
Kinda dumb because you loose the config when the machine reboots. So it would be a good idea to copy the file to /etc and recofigure it to run from the copy
