Overview

There have been widespread reports of a new serious cyber security vulnerability within the last few days. Log4j is used by many systems worldwide including Apple and Amazon etc and its been discovered that there is a serious flaw that has been actively exploited already. Synergi is fully aware of this flaw and our team are actively checking Synergi vendors and our own systems; relevant advice or updates will be shared with our customers as they become available.

Synergi Customer Systems

We are investigating more widely, however a lot of suppliers have not released statements on log4j yet. We are testing components via our Remote Monitoring Toolkit that will check for active exploits using the vulnerability. We will be rolling this out to all Managed Services customers in the next few days. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Synergi support desk however we will be actively helping to mitigate this risk for all customers.

Synergi Systems

We are working closely with our partners and are pleased to report that our main internal systems providers in Microsoft (Office, Security tools and D365), Datto (SaaS protect, Remote Management, Professional Services Automaton) and Sophos (Security Endpoint, WiFi and Firewalls) have all confirmed their systems are safe, have been updated, or do not use this technology.

We have compiled a list of information sources below for further detail. As always the team at Synergi are here to help, our experts are working to check for active exploits in order to mitigate risk for all customers.
