Shellshock Bash Bug, Cisco Meraki Not affected

4Gon Solutions are pleased to confirm that Cisco Merak have announced the Shellshock Bash Bug has not affected Cisco Meraki devices. Here is what Cisco Meraki had to say about the latest bug.

Cisco Meraki devices are not vulnerable to the ShellShock exploit as they don’t run any affected software.  Some components of the Cisco Meraki cloud backend do run software that is within the scope of this vulnerability, but were patched the day it was announced to remove any exposure.  In addition, customers using the MX Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IPS) feature with the “Balanced” or “Security” rulesets automatically received Sourcefire signatures to detect and block this vulnerability within 24 hours of the announcement.

For information on other Cisco products, please see the Cisco advisory on the Shellshock vulnerability.
