I don't think it happened on Twitter - using advanced search with date ranges, I don't see any mentions that would predate this article, which already seems to be using the term: http://www.csoonline.com/article/2687265/application-security/remote-exploit-in-bash-cve-2014-6271.html It's odd that an article posted at 8 AM on Sept 24 would have any idea of how the bug is already being called by the security community, especially ahead of any Twitter buzz. But both Stephane and Florian implied that some of the pre-notified parties apparently started leaking details to the press and were getting ready to make a splash the moment it goes public, so maybe that's the explanation. /mz
