Apache Log4j Vulnerability Impact on Solid Edge
On 09-Dec-2021, a vulnerability in Apache Log4j (a logging tool used in many Java-based applications) was disclosed, that could allow remote unauthenticated attackers to execute code on vulnerable systems. The vulnerability is tracked as CVE-2021-44228 and is also known as "Log4Shell".
At this time, the impact on Solid Edge and its Portfolio suite of tools is limited to the Teamcenter Integration for Solid Edge Wiring & Harness Design and Solid Edge CAM Pro. The rest of our Solid Edge product suite remains unaffected. The following contains the vulnerable version (2.x.x) of Apache Log4j: Solid Edge Wiring Harness Design (SEWHD) - 2020 SP2002 or later - 2021 – all versions - 2022 – all versions Solid Edge CAM Pro (SECP) - 2020 – all versions - 2021 – all versions - 2022 – all versions Note: Older Log4j files (Log4j versions 1.x.x ) found within other Solid Edge add-on applications, such as Geolus, do not contain the vulnerable JndiLookup.class and therefore are unaffected by the vulnerability.
