The information on this page reflects:

  • The assessed current status of Flexera's SaaS systems.
  • The assessed status of all versions of Flexera's products that are still supported (that is, they have not yet reached their End of Life). Product lifecycle dates can be found at https://docs.flexera.com/eol/default.htm.

* In an earlier revision of this page, AdminStudio 2018 was identified as potentially exposed due to the possibility that an edition of InstallShield that shipped with CodeInsight (which does include Log4j) was used. Further assessment has confirmed AdminStudio did not include this edition.

** In an earlier revision of this page, SVM Cloud and SVR were identified as potentially exposed, but the products were not affected, rather an internal tool used for logging which has been updated.

Use of Log4j in Flexera's products

Versions of Apache log4j components that are not vulnerable to CVE-2021-44228 are used in a number of Flexera's products and associated 3rd party products. Apache have identified the vulnerability applies specifically to the log4j-core JAR file versions 2.0-beta9 to 2.14.1.

See the following page for details: https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/security.html.

Other log4j components (such as the log4j-api-2.* JAR file) in this version range have not been identified as vulnerable.
