In early December 2021, a critical vulnerability was discovered which allowed for Remote Code Execution (RCE). This vulnerability (CVE-2021-44228) was also given the nickname Log4Shell due to the fact that it allowed remote (shell) access to vulnerable servers.

Is my hosting with Conetix affected?

All shared hosting environments do not contain any Java applications, therefore there’s no vulnerable services.
