Article #APP6701


On December 09, 2021, SecureLogix became aware of a recently disclosed security issue in Apache Log4j, a logging tool widely used in consumer and enterprise apps, cloud services, and websites. Other security issues have since been disclosed. These issues are identified as CVE-2021-44228,  CVE-2021-45046, and CVE-2021-45105.

SecureLogix has determined that some versions of the PolicyGuru® Solution are using a version of log4j that could be affected by these vulnerabilities. The ETM® System is not affected.

However,, SecureLogix will address these vulnerabilities in accordance with CVE-2021-44228,  CVE-2021-45046, and CVE-2021-45105.
