As of yesterday, there were still some big websites vulnerable to this exploit. Since then, there’s been a effort from hosting companies, websites and developers to fix this exploit.
IIS is not affected by this vulnerability, so if your website is hosted on a Windows platform, you shouldn’t be concerned. However, almost any server with recent versions of UNIX/Linux servers is likely to be vulnerable. If your website is hosted on a Linux server, you should contact your hosting company or have your web developer check if your site is vulnerable.

Here is a test tool to check whether a given domain remains vulnerable.

Here at CSW Solutions, we have already tested our customer domains with this tool and verified that this bug was fixed.
