Using MCollective to generate spiffy Shellshock reports for your boss

 

If you haven't heard of Shellshock, you should crawl out from under your rock and do some Googling. Back? Ok, great. I won't explain what it is, but if you're reading this post, you've probably been tasked to find and patch all vulnerable systems. And management would like to see a comprehensive report of which machines have been patched....

Luckily enough, with Puppet, Facter, and MCollective, that's a trivial task.
