Apple Releases ‘Shellshock’ Security Flaw Fix For OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion

Apple on Monday released OS X bash update 1.0 for OS X Mavericks. The update fixes a vulnerability in the bash UNIX shell. The “Shellshock” security flaw was uncovered last week by security researchers. The exploit in the bash command shell in Linux and OS X could be used to deploy malicious code.
