Tom's pages
 
Tom Womack's reservations page seems to be down. I get:

ucgi: system call error:
exec userv: No such file or directory

When I try to access it..

My sysadmin has disabled CGI scripts until a nasty remote exploit in bash (CVE-2014-6271) is fixed.

It should come back in a couple of days - depends on the efficiency of the Debian security team. They are generally pretty efficient, but the box runs a fairly old Debian and they've understandably prioritised fixing newer ones.

It's back now

I guess they are really efficient :smile:

The first fix is incomplete, there are other ways to trigger remote code execution and your sysadmin should disable CGI scripts again...
A new round of updates is to be expected quickly.
