Salt and the bash security issue

  • September 25, 2014

Yesterday was published a Bash security issue. Details here. So, we needed to upgrade your instance very quickly. Thanksfully, we have SaltStack managing it. The procedure was simple as described below.

To update our systems with Salt, just run:

salt '*' pkg.install bash refresh=True

And to be sure that new nodes are deployed with the latest version add this to your recipes:

bash:
  pkg.latest
