With all the talk about security and vulnerabilities of various operating systems, it's been hard to miss the latest revelation about the Linux/Unix bug call "Shellshocked."  Some of the things being posted are not always technically correct (this article) and some are questioning if the patches being pushed out are effective.

Of course, being vigilant and making sure your system has the latest updates never hurts!
