NetPilot and SoHoBlue NOT vulnerable to Shellshock Bash exploit

The well-publicised bug called ‘Shellshock Bash’ by researchers, affects the Unix command shell ‘Bash’,which is one of the most common applications on this family of systems. This includes any machine running Mac OS X or Linux.

The ‘shell’ or user interface, is software that allows a computer to interact typically with administration users by interpreting text. This vulnerability affects the shell known as Bash (Bourne Again SHell), which is installed not only on computers, but also on many devices (cameras, storage and multimedia appliances, etc.) that use a subset of Linux.

The NetPilot and SoHoBlue’s software has been designed from the ground up to guard against this type of exploit.  User-supplied CGI programs are run in a sandbox area and therefore cannot affect the rest of the system.  The administration user interface does not involve use of the Bash shell. In addition this interface requires a  secure logon in order to gain access.  Hence we do not believe the NetPilot and SohoBlue products to be vulnerable to the Shellshock Bash exploit.
