But, no matter their differences they all require serious attention at a constant level, so that when the next Shellshock-like incident occurs, it won’t take cybersecurity world by surprise.

How a Linux bug may affect Windows-based infrastructure

The recent developments with “big bugs” such as Heartbleed and Shellshock created a global security strain, with many questions emerging. Both bugs were open-source software-related, but indirectly they would constitute a threat to Windows-based infrastructure. In this post we review a few scenarios of an attack on mostly Windows-based network with Linux servers at certain points.
