XOPS helps in patching for Shellshock

posted by: Sid Sharma date: Oct 06, 2014 category: Uncategorized comments: 0

Shellshock, also known as Bashdoor,[1] is a family of security bugs[2] in the widely used Unix Bash shell, the first of which was disclosed on 24 September 2014. Many Internet daemons, such as web servers, use Bash to process certain commands, allowing an attacker to cause vulnerable versions of Bash to execute arbitrary commands. This can allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to a computer system.[3]


At Xervmon, we use XOPS for managing our server configurations and maintaining the sanity of the system.  XOPS helps DevOps/IT Pros to automate repetitive tasks, deploy applications and pro-actively manage servers across hybrid footprint throughout their lifecycle, including provisioning, configuration and orchestration.

In our case, we had over 180 servers spanning multiple cloud providers. Just imagine how painful it is to manually login and patch the server. XOPS leverages the Puppet framework and we included the script below within XOPS and pushed to all 180 servers on click of a button.

class common::shellshock {

package {

ensure => latest
