The Brandshelter Global IT/Engineering teams have been monitoring the ongoing situation with regard to Log4j since the disclosure of the ‘Log4shell’ exploit right after it was made public on 9 December 2021.
On December 10, 2021, NIST published a critical Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure alert, CVE-2021-44228. More specifically, JNDI features used in configuration, log messages, and parameters do not protect against attacker-controlled LDAP and other JNDI related endpoints. An attacker who can control log messages or log message parameters can execute arbitrary code loaded from remote servers when message lookup substitution is enabled.
The team has run an initial security risk assessment on our infrastructure and applications used by our Clients, and we believe that our services are not affected / cannot be exploited by this vulnerability. However, we continue to liaise with the specific vendors and teams so as to keep up with any new developments on that front.
