Just learned that a Foundstone detection script is expected to be released later today (17:00 CEST is what we unofficially heard).

Erik is correct. The script(according to their paltinum support), will be available is 3 hours. An SNS notification will be sent out when the CVE-2014-6271 MVM and signature is available.

where did you get this information?  I haven't seen anything in the SNS except for Vulnerability Manager.

Thats what you need in order to "Scan" for that vulnerability. Outside of that, you need to get updates from the various vendors.. Here is the MVM update link:

McAfee Vulnerability Manager FASL content for Shellshock (CVE-2014-6271) Vulnerability in GNU Bash is now available for download.

Please refer to the following KB article for instructions on updating MVM FASL content as well as creating a scan:
