You may have heard on the news or from a friend that the internet is exposed to another rather nasty exploit called the Shellshock Bash bug. This particular bug affects linux/unix based systems that have a program called “bash” on them, which most do. Theoretically, a remote attacker can gain access to a system which has programming written within this bash scripting language.
GOOD NEWS! Rentec does not use any bash scripting, and we also keep a diligent eye on security to ensure your data is protected. We’ve already patched all servers with a version of bash which is immune to this attack which indicates that Rentec Direct is far ahead of the curve in patching vulnerabilities that can affect you.
