I find it ironic that it's another "big global" security hole about
which Windows users don't even have to be concerned about.
All of my windows boxes needed to be updated. One of the first things I
do on any new windows box is install cygwin to get a saner development
environment with bash as my shell.
Yea. I've been very tempted to put bash on my Win desktops as well.
Heck, I may even have some old installation of msys/mingw bash still
lying around somewhere.
I wouldn't be shocked at all if other windows apps bundle bash for one
reason or another too. It might not come as part of the base install
(though given the huge pile of stuff that gets installed, I wouldn't put
huge bets on it not lurking off in a dark corner somewhere), but that's
not the end of the story.
Yup, Git comes to mind. (Or at least Git GUI?) Don't know whether that
actually exposes any attack vectors, but I guess that's kinda the big
question everyone's trying to find out, isn't it? "What are all the
possible attack vectors of this flaw?" Some of them have been
discovered, but who knows what else there may be.
