Shell Shock Bash Bug – Fixed on eBoundHost Servers

A major security flaw was discovered in Bash.  The Shell Shock vulnerability allows attackers to issue arbitrary commands via crafted environment variables.

There is a simple test that will show you if you’re vulnerable. Just run the following command within your shell:

env X=”() { :;} ; echo UPDATENOW” /bin/sh -c “echo test”

If you see the word “UPDATENOW” echoed back then your Bash version is vulnerable and you have to update.

All eBoundHost managed servers were patched just moments after the vulnerability was announced.  If you already have an account on our managed servers you don’t need to do anything.  If you have an unmanaged server with eBoundHost, please contact us and we can help you at no cost.  This vulnerability also affects other devices and not only web servers.  If you’re using Linux at home or in the office, you need to update Bash to the latest available stable version just to make sure that you’re not at risk.

eBoundHost.com has the best customer service in ANY industry. Their support staff answers phone calls and emails immediately and they have time and time again gone over and above their responsibilities to make sure I am taken care of and that my clients are happy. I have many websites hosted here from small business to corporate level and have dealt with many hosting companies in the industry and eBoundHost.com is by far the BEST hosting provider there is. Great prices, great service, great hosting packages, and a killer reseller program! THANK YOU AGAIN :)

Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.

No better web host on the market! Support is second to none.

Roger Hamilton

I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.

I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.

There is not a place on this Planet that you can get better service, support or hosting!

From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!

S. Gino

eBoundHost.com has been a dream to work with. My questions are answered in minutes, the price is very reasonable, the interface is great, I am very happy with how smooth everything works.
