eScan has rolled out a tool which will help in identifying the infected servers by the latest found Shellshock bug. The users can access the tool from the company’s website. This newly found bug enables the hackers to remotely execute malicious code with an aim to acquire access of a computer system. Along with the Unix-based operating systems such as Linux and Mac OS-X the bug also infects Internet-connected home devices such as mobile phones, routers, password-protected door alarms, Webcams, Wi-Fi radios and other IoT (Internet of Things) devices, running on Linux or UNIX-based version of operating system.
Commenting about the security tool, Govind Rammurthy, MD and CEO, eScan said, “Hackers never lose a single opportunity to take advantage of any vulnerability. They attempt to discover web servers that are vulnerable and gain unauthorized access to a computer system. All the Unix-based operating systems such as Linux and Mac OS X are likely to be affected with the Bash Shellshock vulnerability. Hence, we suggest IT users to use our Shellshock detection tool that is available on our website for free, to find out if their server is affected and take necessary corrective action.”
This new solution from eScan ensures complete protection against all types of attacks from the malware and further provides protection from web and email threats.
