Shellshock – without impact on Westermo products

A Linux security issue in systems using the Bash shell was announced to the world yesterday. This vulnerability, CVE-2014 - 6271, called Shellshock enables unauthorised execution of malicious code on affected systems.

Westermo does not use the Bash shell in WeOS and customers that are using our products are therefore not affected by this security issue. No action is therefore required to be implemented in existing installations with Westermo products.

Westermo sees network security as a top priority within critical infrastructure solutions, therefore we have also verified that the secrurity issue effecting Bash can not be triggered using the CLI part of WeOS.
