Log4J Vulnerability Announcement

UPDATE: 16/12/2021 1030hrs

Cryoserver is also not vulnerable to the https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2021-45046 variant - as we are not using the affected version of Log4J.

UPDATE: 14/12/2021 1630hrs

Following our previous announcement, we are pleased to confirm that no version of Cryoserver is vulnerable to CVE-2021-44228

Our initial examination of Cryoserver versions <v9.5.0 led us to believe that there existed a back-end vulnerability that could potentially be exploited.  We have now confirmed that this is not the case.

Cryoserver customers pre-version 9.5 should nevertheless schedule an upgrade at some point in the future as good practice.

13/12/2021 1400hrs

On Friday 10th December, Apache announced a critical vulnerability within the LOG4J logging library for Java, called Log4Shell or LogJam.

At 10/10 severity, this is comfortably one of the most serious IT vulnerabilities to have been discovered in recent memory, as Log4J is often installed on both Linux and Windows systems either directly, or often as a requirement of another package or system.

Log4J is included on servers built by Cryoserver.
