Romanian Hackers Allegedly Used The Shellshock Bug To Hack Yahoo's Servers

Security researcher Jonathan Hall says he has found evidence that Romanian hackers used the Shellshock bug to gain access to Yahoo servers, according to a post on his website Future South.

The Shellshock bug can be used by hackers to control servers using a vulnerability in Linux and Unix. The problem has existed for over 20 years, but it was only discovered in September. If a hacker gains access to a server using the Shellshock bug, they could see everything that is stored there.
