The Bash Vulnerability and BrightSign Players

Some users have asked about the vulnerability of our players to the "Shellshock" bug, which is a security vulnerability associated with the Bash application for Linux (and Linux-based devices).

BrightSign players use a Linux-based platform, but this platform does not implement Bash in any form. BrightSign players, therefore, have none of the security vulnerabilities associated with this bug.

Update: To resolve any possibility of security vulnerabilities, we have patched the Bash version used on BrightSign Network servers that are Linux based.
