comment Aw, snap from google chrome - no fix in sight
I actually did a full purge as well. And then installed the deb from google. The problem persists. My fix? switch to firefox. I think there must be some broken library that chrome uses that is causing this.

comment Is Ubuntu 12.04 still vulnerable to the GHOST bug?
Thanks, I actually figured out it wasn't vulnerable with a little c check program. Turns out the update fixes it. It'd be nice if Ubuntu posted such stuff on a feed on their main website.

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.
