Worried about the Java Log4j vulnerability?

Worried about the Java Log4j vulnerability?

We have some great news!

We would like to assure customers that all of our software is completely unaffected.

On 9th December 2021, a critical security vulnerability was identified in the popular Java logging package called Apache Log4j. The vulnerability could allow an attacker to execute code on a remote server.

The CloudFlare Blog has a good article on the details, and the issue itself is tracked under the (catchy) Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures ID: CVE-2021-44228.

Fantom Factory software is written in the Fantom programming language, which runs on the JVM; the same technology used by Java. Some features of Fantom (and SkySpark) are written in Java, however, nothing produced by Fantom Factory uses the Apache Log4J logging framework.

As Fantom specialists, we do not use the Java Log4J package with any of our systems.

The base SkySpark installation also does not use Java Log4J.
