Bash is Bollocks for security

Why in the world Bash isn't deleted from any Internet-facing system, I have no idea. If you look at John Hall's code, it's Bash itself that's making a connection back to Hall's servers. I can imagine that a complete evil server system could be hidden in Bash environmental variables. A "minimal system" should be exactly that, with minimal functionality.
