Shellshock Security Patch for X86
Guide for Using the FFPS Update Manager
October 2014
Version 1.0

On Sept 25th, media sources announced security vulnerabilities in the Bash shell software (aka Shellshock). Understandably, Xerox customers are concerned about these vulnerabilities.

Unix and Unix-derived systems like Linux and Mac OS X are vulnerable to these attacks since they use Bash as the default command shell. The FreeFlow Print Server (FFPS) includes the Solaris Operating System, which is potentially affected since it includes the Bash shell.

A document addressing this vulnerability and describing a tool for updating FreeFlow Print Server has been posted to the Xerox Security Site.
