Cool thread, guys! Really amazing to see all our stuff in the wild, especially when it’s linked to such big names!

The first thing to do is to get in touch with the author of the file. The public forums are not the best place to start with a question that is so specific to a single file. Furthermore, it is rather unlikely that there was no style.css file included with a WP theme.. Are you sure?

After a rather tumultuous weekend including multiple restores from my Time Machine (ouch!), I finally upgraded.

Guys, if you’re stuck on ‘2 minutes remaining’, be patient. If you have a bunch of stuff in /usr/local/bin (such as LaTeX or a large number of Homebrew packages), this last few steps can take multiple hours. Even the cmd+L installation logs can get stuck for an hour without showing any progress. Be. Patient. It’ll be all right in the end. Wait it out.

And Suppose We update a new very advanced version of the script

Do make sure you include a description of the update in the comments section included in the upload form, so that the reviewer is aware of the size of your update :)

But I can’t do it. To create a rough effect (not a final version) it is a ten minute job!

Be wary of defining the amount of time something takes that you personally cannot do – this is often difficult to estimate, and doing so may send the wrong message.

I guess it really depends on how Ebay will be treating Paypal from now on, and how Amazon will react. If this means that Ebay is diverging from the ease-of-use thing they’ve got going with Paypal, that may turn out pretty badly for the latter. Then again, if this triggers Amazon to flick the switch, Paypal has a great future ahead of it..

Honestly I’m not too concerned about ApplePay on this respect – if they’re going to flip over anything, it’ll be analogue credit card payments rather than digital ones.

I’d be interested to see if/how this is exploitable from some sort of popular front end app (thinking, apache with mod_php, not just cgi)

While mod_php does not immediately rely on bash in the way cgi does, it could definitely be possible to influence environment variables. Forcing a remote machine to read the variables would be a second issue, though. In any case, many uses of exec() and system() are likely to run into bash somewhere along the line. I’m very curious how this one will play out, as I doubt the patching process will be anywhere as smooth as with Heartbleed.

Thanks for the snippits showing your local test :)

Moved this to global off-topic. Not because it’s not important, but because it’s not immediately related to the marketplaces.
