Zero-Day Exploit in Spring Framework | Spring4Shell

Crownpeak is actively monitoring the Spring4Shell zero-day CVE-2022-22965 vulnerability.  Please see CVE-2022-22963 and CVE-2022-22965. Our operations team has performed a thorough review of internal systems and support applications to determine if Crownpeak systems contain any exposure to the vulnerability.  These two vulnerabilities have been discovered almost at the same time and thus tend to get mixed up in the news although they have different attack vectors. At this time, no exploits have been identified while we continue to perform our investigation.

This article will be updated regularly to provide information about how the vulnerability affects Crownpeak and its ecosystem as well as details on how we handle the issue and what you can do to secure your systems.
