Version 5.0.5

03 January 2022

IMPROVEMENTS

This version patches the vulnerability mentioned below. Unlike the Log4j vulnerabilities fixed in 5.0.0, 5.0.2 and 5.0.3 upgrades which had severities of high or critical, this vulnerability has been assigned a severity of moderate severity. We still suggest that you upgrade at your earliest convenience. 

Important: Security Vulnerability CVE-2021-44832

Summary: Apache Log4j2 vulnerable to RCE via JDBC Appender when attacker controls configuration.

Details

Apache Log4j2 versions 2.0-beta7 through 2.17.0 (excluding security fix releases 2.3.2 and 2.12.4) are vulnerable to a remote code execution (RCE) attack where an attacker with permission to modify the logging configuration file can construct a malicious configuration using a JDBC Appender with a data source referencing a JNDI URI which can execute remote code. This issue is fixed by limiting JNDI data source names to the java protocol in Log4j2 versions 2.17.1, 2.12.4, and 2.3.2.

Version 5.0.4

22 December 2021

IMPROVEMENTS

20 December 2021

FLASH NEWS - LOG4J VULNERABILITY UPDATED - NOW WITH 2.17.0

  • Log4j Vulnerability - Urgent upgrade of OnTime Strongly Recommended

    Apache Log4j2 versions 2.0-alpha1 through 2.16.0 did not protect from uncontrolled recursion from self-referential lookups. When the logging configuration uses a non-default Pattern Layout with a Context Lookup (for example, $${ctx:loginId}), attackers with control over Thread Context Map (MDC) input data can craft malicious input data that contains a recursive lookup, resulting in a StackOverflowError that will terminate the process. This is also known as a DOS (Denial of Service) attack.

 

IMPROVEMENTS

ONTIME DESKTOP CLIENT

  • Added new favorite marking for public and shared groups. Whenever a public or shared group has the star to the right of the name checked, the group becomes part of the users private groups.
