    Shellshock (software bug)  was a vulnerability in the bash interpreter, that would be activated if somewhat the attacker could set i.e. environment variables of shell processes (i.e. from running CGIs, some configurations of openssh, or some mail filters) or parameters passed to the shell without too much filtering.

    Simply, shellshock can serve as a highway for worms and malware to hit not only Linux also unix & mac servers. Though it is not so bad as "heartbleed". It is possible to protect from that.
