Security Strike Team (David Jardin)

  • JSST received several requests about potential vulnerabilities in Joomla related to the log4j issue - but as log4j is based upon Java and Joomla is based upon PHP, there is no issue in the CMS
  • JSST did a review of the project’s infrastructure for vulnerable assets related to log4j without any findings.
