Important Announcement Regarding Shellshock Vulnerability

September 30, 2014

TASC is very serious about maintaining the security and privacy of Client and Participant data. Recently, you may have heard about Shellshock. This bug is a vulnerability in a very popular program—Bash—that is present on almost every Linux-based computer and device in the world. The bug can be used to remotely take control of systems using Bash.

We are unaware of any unauthorized system access to our platforms. On September 25, 2014, we installed a patch to guard against this issue. And while we have mitigated the threat, we will continue to monitor with vigilance, and will apply verified patches as needed.

No action is required on your part. Simply continue using the MyTASC platform, with confidence. If you have any questions about this communication, please contact TASC Customer Care.
