A security flaw called “Shellshock” has been in the media recently. This major vulnerability affects operating systems derived from Unix, which includes the Linux operating system, and can allow hackers to execute arbitrary commands (thus taking over the computer or system with malicious intent). Many of the websites hosted by WebStores Ltd use Linux as the operating system.
I wanted to provide you assurances that our security team took immediate action once this vulnerability was uncovered and made public. This includes performing immediate software updates, with the fix, to the Linux shared hosting segments, and ensuring all internal systems that manage customer information are secure against this threat.
