Korem’s Response to CVE-2021-44228 Apache Log4j 2

QUÉBEC CITY, December 13, 2021 – Korem and its partners are actively investigating the impacts of the Log4j library vulnerability (CVE-2021-44228) disclosed on December 9, 2021.

We will update this page with information and protection details as they become available.

Last update: 12/13/2021.

In addition to monitoring the threat landscape for attacks, our security team has been analyzing where Apache Log4j may be used and is taking expedited steps to mitigate any instances. This includes: Korem hosted solutions, Korem developed custom applications, Korem partner’s and Korem suppliers.

At this stage, it appears that our current security practices (ISO 27001 Certification) and the way our solutions are deployed greatly limit the risk associated with the vulnerability.

If we identify any customer impact, we will notify the affected party.

As stated previously, we are currently in communication with our partners to get their vulnerability assessment for their software versions and SaaS services.
