EVP Systems Unaffected by "Shellshock" Bug

Servers Patched the Same Day the Issue was Announced

On September 24, 2014, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) issued an advisory for systems running the Linux operating system, about a newly discovered vulnerability, called "Shellshock." EVP Systems applied vendor-provided patches by 10:00pm Pacific Time on the 24th, and found no evidence of any intrusion prior to that.

EVP Systems takes the security and readiness of our servers seriously. We maintain two distinct, physically separated data centers in order to continue to provide service, even in the event of a catastrophe. All the company's e-mail, billing records, client files and data is backed-up off-site, and a disaster recovery plan is maintained and tested every quarter. We monitor both vendor- and government-provided security alerts, to ensure the sanctity of our systems and your data.

If you have any questions about "Shellshock" or any other aspect of our systems' robustness or security, please don't hesitate to contact us at support@evpsys.com
