We understand that keeping your business running and protecting your services is a priority. One that we here at Pro2col share. Our in-house technical team has been carefully monitoring the issues surrounding the global Log4j vulnerability to ensure that our services are not impacted.

To maintain our business continuity we have conducted an audit of all the systems and 3rd party tools leveraged within Pro2col, to establish and eliminate any risk posed by Log4j exposure.

We have not identified any Log4j vulnerabilities in these systems. We continue to monitor the situation and are having ongoing conversations with our suppliers to ensure this remains the case. We’ve dedicated technical resource to ensure that any patches or fixes issued by our software providers are implemented promptly.

As well as maintaining our business continuity, we aim to provide all of our customers with the most-up-to-date advice and information from our vendor partners. Our technical team are liaising directly with the technical and security teams at our vendors to ensure we can pass on information about risks and mitigations at pace.

You can see all of the current responses and fixes from our vendor partners listed below. We will update this page with the latest information as we receive it.


ArcESB / CData

ArcESB 2020 and releases of RSSBus Connect prior to this (RSSBus Connect 2016 through 2019) do not contain any references to log4j and are unaffected by this vulnerability. Similarly, the 2021 release of ArcESB for Windows includes no assemblies that contain the log4j vulnerability. If you are using the Windows/.NET edition of ArcESB or a Java release before 21.0.7963.0, you can proceed without changes. In recent releases of the Java version of ArcESB 2021 (21.0.7963.0 and later), support was added for a Kafka connector (a connector for integrating with Apache Kafka), which does embed the log4j-1.2.17.jar where a security vulnerability has been found. A review from our development team concludes that we don’t believe this code is exploitable; nevertheless we will be making new builds of the Kafka JDBC driver available soon that removes this embedded jar. Users of the existing distribution of ArcESB 2021 Java Edition (21.0.7963.0 and later) can remove the cdata.jdbc.apachekafka.jar from the lib folder of their Java servlet container to remove any doubt about the presence of the vulnerability.


SFT / Biscom

Biscom software is not affected by the exploit in any way.
Biscom Security Teams are aware of the log4j zero day exploit (CVE-2021-44228) that has been announced. There is no known impact to our software and services. Within our cloud services we have implemented proactive mitigation measures as we continue to monitor and investigate the situation.

We are monitoring the situation and continuing our investigation for any impact. So far our finding is that the Java class that is at the root of this issue was added in log4j 2.0, so previous versions will not be affected by this specific exploit. Regardless, we are working on upgrading the logging library. Please let us know if you have any questions.


VLTrader, Harmony / Cleo
