Article Number000206960

On December 9, 2021 Progress Software was made aware of a critical vulnerability in a common Java logging library called Log4j.  Links to additional resources describing the vulnerability and its origin are included at the end of this post. 

Although some MOVEit products are Java based, none of the currently supported MOVEit versions are affected.  Please check the MOVEit Product Support Lifecycle page and ensure you are on a supported version of MOVEit.  

If you are scanning MOVEit installations for log4j you may find the following log4j files:

  • log4j-1.2.17 
    Log4j version 1.2.17 was not affected by the vulnerability, but was shipped with some supported versions of MOVEit 

  • log4j-api, log4j-to-slf4 or log4j-jul 

    Only the log4j-core module was affected by the vulnerability.  MOVEit products do not use log4j-core and it is not installed with MOVEit dependencies 


MOVEit Cloud is not directly vulnerable to the log4j vulnerability.  All 3rd party tools have been reviewed and mitigations or updates have been applied where specified by vendors.
