  • Zero Day log4j Vulnerability in EPP

    Apache Log4j <=2.14.1 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 LDAP servers when message lookup substitution is enabled. From log4j 2.15.0, this behavior has been disabled by default. Cloud Inventory® has found that there is very minimal potential impact on EPP 10 versions. Cloud Inventory® is releasing a hotfix imminently with the updated log4j2 code. See the blog post for further information regarding EPP 10.x:
