    Not sure if im correct or not but ive got a vague memory that webOS use the Bourne again shell (BASH). Does that mean we are affected by the "Shell shock"-bug that use BASH? If so, is there anything we can do? I dont really want to stop using my Pre3 if I dont have too.

    Unlikely, unless you run webserver with CGI/FastCGI on your Pre3, or allow random people to log in via ssh.

    By default there isn't even bash on webOS devices... only if you install it via optware. So if you did not do that, you are save.

    And even IF you installed bash, what briest said still holds.

    I do enjoy not being in the crosshairs
