You may be aware of the widespread security issue relating to the Log4j vulnerability that has affected many companies and vendors. We are happy to report that our systems are unaffected by this vulnerability.

What is the scope of the Log4j vulnerability?

Apache Log4j is a popular Java-based logging library that gives developers an easy way to build a record of activity that can be used for auditing, data tracking, troubleshooting and more. Many companies around the world use Log4j to configure their applications. Last week, a vulnerability involving remote code execution was discovered. While that vulnerability is now patched, cybersecurity experts are raising concerns as thousands of hacking attempts are occurring per hour.
