  • Statement regarding CVE-2021-44228 identified in Log4j

    CVE-2021-44228, a zero-day vulnerability identified in Log4j

    Description
    A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to take control of an affected system. Log4j is an open-source, Java-based logging utility widely used by enterprise applications and cloud services.

    Affected system and version
    Log4j versions 2.0-beta9 to 2.14.1.

    Jama Software’s Review
    After a thorough software and code review, Jama Software has been unable to identify any open-attack vectors or evidence of past exploit. Additionally, Jama Software has determined that the JDK versions in use both in cloud and updated on-premises instances are not affected by the LDAP attack vector. In these versions, the LDAP object trust is set to false, meaning JNDI cannot load remote code using LDAP.

    Jama Software’s security team has both implemented additional threat detection measures and are actively monitoring this issue, should further response be required.

    Conclusion
    Jama Software customers on supported on-premises versions and in the cloud do not need to take any action. While Log4j is in use, the attack vector cannot be exploited because of our default configuration.

  • 8.63 - Content Header Design

    As part of the Jama Connect 8.63.0 Cloud release, an update to the content header for components and items resulted in abnormal database behavior and sporadic performance issues. As soon as Jama Software Support identified the issue the new feature was turned off, which returned the content headers to their previous design (as seen in 8.62.0 and prior).

    No functionality or data has been lost. 8.63.1 Release to release the new header design has now been scheduled for Tuesday, August 3rd for North America and EMEA, and Wednesday, August 4th for Australia/APAC.
