  • On Friday, December 10th, 2021, the National Institute for Standards and
    Technologies (NIST) identified a vulnerability within the Apache Log4j
    library, potentially impacting systems running Apache Log4j.
    You may have read about this in the press: –


    ONYX users can use the below product patch if running 21.1.1 to prevent any
    impact due to the vulnerabilities with Apache Log4j. Versions before 21.1 are
    not affected.

    To install the Security patch, an upgrade from ONYX 21.1 to ONYX 21.1.1
    must be performed. The latest version of ONYX software can be found on
    the downloads page of our website. For ONYX Hub users specifically,
    this update will also need to be run from the update function in the
    ONYX Hub controller.

    It is important to note that there have been no reported issues
    concerning our software. Still, we take our customer’s security
    seriously, and with an abundance of caution, we provide this patch.
