Log4j – what you need to know


You may have heard about a ‘Log4j vulnerability’ in the news, and have concerns about what it is and whether it affects your business. In plain English, this is a flaw in a piece of software that is used widely across the internet, meaning that cybercriminals could remotely steal data, install malware or take control of your device.

The security and antivirus products that we use can detect and block these attacks from version 7 onwards. Our managed IT customers will all have been issued with v9, and we will continue to monitor and keep their security and malware software up to date in the face of this and all future threats.
