>There’s a new internet-crippling zero-day vulnerability in town called Shellshock. It potentially affects around half of all websites on the internet (around 500 million), and millions or billions more internet-connected devices such as routers, smartphones. Unlike Heartbleed, which was quite hard to exploit properly, Shellshock can be exploited with just a couple of lines of code, giving just about anyone the ability to run arbitrary code on an affected computer. In simple terms, this means that it’s now relatively simple for anyone to gain unauthorized access to a large portion of the world’s computers, and download/extract a wide variety of sensitive details. Shellshock also has the potential to be turned into a worm — a self-replicating piece of code that automatically propagates to all Shellshock-vulnerable systems, potentially causing untold damage.

With this method of treatment, the rat’s leg movements are driven by electrical pulses shot directly into the spinal cord (which has unfortunately been severed in the name of science).
