Ghost in the (Bourne Again) Shell: Fallout of Shellshock far from over

The problem with Shellshock is similar to problems that emerged after the Heartbleed bug and numerous other vulnerabilities—while organizations struggle to understand the disclosures, how they affect their systems, and how to successfully implement patches, others—including security researchers—race to build proof-of-concept attacks based on them to demonstrate exactly how dire they are. And those proofs of concept often get picked up by cybercriminals and others with bad intent before organizations can effectively patch them—using them to exploit systems in ways that are much longer-lasting than the vulnerability du jour.

From The Atom 330 To Haswell ULT: Intel Linux Performance Benchmarks

For the past month I’ve been testing out the CompuLab Intense-PC2 and it’s been a terrific, small, Linux PC. The Intense-PC2 is packed with a low-power “Haswell ULT” Core i7 4600U processor and for some fresh Linux benchmarks I compared it to the former Sandy Bridge Core i7 3517UE and Intel Bay Trail Celeron N2820 NUC. For making things real interesting, I also ran some new benchmarks on an aging Intel Atom 330 system to show how the Intel low-power performance has been improving in recent years.
