That's the case from some of our clients who have been worried by news this week of a new 'virus' called Shellshock - our advice is not to panic!
Firstly, this isn't a virus at all but is a bug that exploits a component in the operating system of Linux systems and Apple Macs known as Bash.
Bash and Shellshock – we can help
This means that someone may be able to take control remotely of a computer running on Linux or Apple's OS.
The bug has been given a 'severe' rating because it could cause a lot of damage to a lot of computers - some estimates say up to 500 million computers could be at risk.
