Normally someone posts about sercutiy issues in this section but I guess the focus has been about the game being down. If you have Linux or Mac OS X this will effect you: http://www.troyhunt.com/2014/09/everyth ... about.html. Apple should have a patch soon(if not allready), you can also check distors repository for a newer release. If you check online you can make sure you update to the correct version.

Here is how you know if your effected:
Code:
env X="() { :;} ; echo busted" /bin/sh -c "echo stuff"

If you are effected you will see the word 'busted'. You should see stuff in either case. Note that this assumes your defualt shell is bash and that it's in "bin/sh". If your unsure of what this means, don't worry OS venders will 'push out' updates soon.

Oh and I don't think MOULa is effected by this issue.

Also a reminder not to change passwrods until sites say the bug has been fixed. You don't want to have to pointlessly change your password twice.

Lastly I don't think this effects MOULa.
