Sherbrooke, Canada - December 14, 2021.
A major security flaw in the Java Apache Log4J library has recently been identified, allowing users to bypass the safety measures in place. The relative ease of this feat creates potential conditions for large -scale exploitation (similar to Shellshock).
Aware of the importance of the problem, M5 Technologies investigated the feat and analyzed its source code in search of vulnerabilities.
Fortunately, the bridges, ATA and SBC Mediatrix, as well as the M5T SDKs do not use the Java Apache log4J library and are therefore not vulnerable to the log4shell feat.
Impact on Mediatrix customers
Given that Sentinel 400 allows you to install a virtual machine (VM) likely to use the Java library concerned, it is advisable to customers using a VM license to ensure that the services installed are safe and that VM is advised and that VM She herself is protected against any form of malicious attack.
