Latest update as of Feb. 15, 2022. All current threats have been addressed. 

Further updates will be made as new information becomes available. 

Qlik has been diligently reviewing and testing our product suite since we’ve become aware of the Apache Log4j vulnerability mid-December.  We want to ensure Qlik users that your security is our upmost priority. We have addressed multiple vulnerabilities through a series of product patches for supported affected versions and we recommend you update to the most recent releases available, shown in the chart below.

Log4j versions before v2.16 presented the highest threat and all exposed Qlik products have provided patches with at least v2.16 and will all be updated to v2.17.1 or later under the regular release schedule as we are not vulnerable to the CVEs related to 2.17.0

We’d like to direct you to our FAQ document to review should you have any further questions, and we encourage you to comment with any additional questions.

    • Qlik Sense Enterprise, all supported versions
    • Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS

Hi @AmitH 

I followed up on your support case just now. On a default installation of Enterprise Manager, the file can be found here:

C:\Program Files\Attunity\Enterprise Manager\java\bin

If it is not there, try searching for the file name in Windows Explorer, atajs.bat

Thanks,

Dana

Can someone from Qlik comment whether or not we can use the following command to remove the affected java class from Qlik Replicate/Q enterprise manager servers?

zip -q -d log4j-core-*.jar org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class  

It's  current mitigation action recommended by the Log4j Apache.

@Nomaan , the guidance from Qlik is the same - applications must be updated to use Log4j 2.16. We are in the process of developing and releasing patches. The mitigation steps in the blog post reduce the risk of this vulnerability, but a patch is required to eliminate the risk.

Hello @aplima , copy @PatrickQ , @lyka ,

It's John from Qlik Support Team. I'm trying to answer the below question:

Can someone from Qlik comment whether or not we can use the following command to remove the affected java class from Qlik Replicate/Q enterprise manager servers?

zip -q -d log4j-core-*.jar org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class  

It's  current mitigation action recommended by the Log4j Apache. 

https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/security.html

 

1. First of all please backup the original jar file, eg "log4j-core-2.11.1.jar". so far you can rollback your change if necessary

2. Yes. the command works fine on Linux. It removes only one member "JndiLookup.class" from "log4j-core-*.jar"

3. After the "zip" command done, replace the "log4j-core-*.jar" file and restart Replicate services

 

I performed the above steps in my env and I verified it does not impact the endpoint server, or task running (test task with MongoDB source, Oracle target).

* Note I did not perform the same test for Qlik Enterprise Manager yet.

4. Replicate build number is 2021.5.0.1186

5. The operated file is "log4j-core-2.11.1.jar", default location "C:\Program Files\Attunity\Replicate\endpoint_srv\externals"

6. MongoDB source, version number 4.4.10

7. Enable the task  all logging components to Verbose, enable the Endpoint Server all logging components to Verbose, compare the log files between using the two "log4j-core-*.jar" files, no error/warning found, no keyword "log4j", or "org.apache.logging.log4j.core.lookup" appears in any log files (task log, replicate server log, endpoint server log etc).  all works fine.

If you are running Endpoint server and you have the endpoints includes MongoDB, Saleforce, SAP Extractor, VSAM, please let me know. We will coordinate with internal team to  double-confirm for you.

If you are not using above endpoint, then feel free to apply the change.

BTW, even the above steps works, I'd like to suggest to upgrade to the latest patched version whenever it's available shortly.

Let me know if you need any additional information.

Regards,

John.
