Protect Your Server Against Shellshock

You need to update your Linux server's installation of bash immediately to protect it from Shellshock, which was discovered on Sept. 24, 2014.

You only need to perform this update if you have a VPS or dedicated server. Customers with shared hosting accounts do not need to do anything.
