Security Bulletin: DS8000 Hardware Management Console uses Apache Log4j which is subject to a vulnerability alert CVE-2021-44228.


## Summary The DS8000 Hardware Managment Console leverages Apache Log4j CVE-2021-44228, which is subject to a vulnerability and may allow remote attackers to execute local code on the system. ## Vulnerability Details ** CVEID: **[CVE-2021-44228](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2021-44228>) ** DESCRIPTION: **Apache Log4j could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the failure to protect against attacker controlled LDAP and other JNDI related endpoints by JNDI features. By sending a specially crafted code string, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to load arbitrary Java code on the server and take complete control of the system. Note: The vulnerability is also called Log4Shell or LogJam.
