Is Palo vulnerable to the shell shock Linux bug?
I also wonder if it is or not
There are some fixes and tests on the web for linux and macos but we don't have root access to test :smileyhappy:
I believe the latest emergency content update addresses this:

Good to know that there is a signature for it, but it doesn't answer the question if the OS itself is vulnerable of not
