VIDIZMO is not exposed to Log4j vulnerability. Read more to understand what measures we have taken to mitigate the situation.


Overview

On December 9th, 2021; the widely used Apache logging library log4j was reported to be vulnerable to RCE (remote code execution). This vulnerability has been actively exploited. From giants like Amazon and Tesla to small startups, many organizations are at risk. Security pros say that it is one of the worst computer vulnerabilities they have ever seen. You can read more about it here.


It is a Zero-day vulnerability and therefore, requires rapid and dedicated efforts to patch up the infected servers. Organizations that are running the logging library log4j are at severe risk. Fortunately, VIDIZMO does not run this logging service on any of its servers or devices.


How is VIDIZMO Safe?

On December 10th, 2021, the VIDIZMO team ran an immediate assessment of its codebases for instances of log4j. No instances of log4J were found within VIDIZMO. We have investigated all of our devices, environments, servers, and platforms and we are confident that we are not vulnerable to any attack through this vulnerability.
