Hi all,

We’ve had a couple individuals reach out to ask if the KB is or was affected by the log4j security vulnerability that was recently discovered. In case some of you are asked to report back on the security of applications like the KB, we wanted to send out information that you can refer to.

We can confirm that the KB does not use log4j or any of the java-based technologies tied to it, so we were not affected by this vulnerability, and no remediation was required.

Of course, please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need additional information.

Thank you,

The KB Team
