Hi @Gautam Ghosh ,

Regarding the Atlassian products you can find more information here

the short answer is, they are not impacted or the impact has been mitigated on cloud.

Since you are looking for information regarding a specific application (I can't figure out which one exactly and if it is a public or private one) you would be best to contact the vendor of the app directly.

Hi Dirk Ronsmans ,

Thank you very much for the quick response.  It has been very helpful .


Hi Dirk ,

One other question is for the  components , running on  AWS Cloud EC2 ,   for which the information are given below.  Any security issues related to Log4j?
