Log4j Security – 14th December 2021

 

Vocus have been actively working to ensure that systems are not vulnerable to the Log4j exploit and that we can detect and respond to any Log4j malicious activity.

 

We can confirm:

  • Vocus NZ has no public facing systems vulnerable to log4j. We have been actively monitoring and scanning for any log4j exploration related activity (both internally and externally) since the morning of 11 December.
     
  • Vocus NZ has not been impacted by suspicious activity. As can be expected, we are seeing exploration attempts, but the bulk of these are unsophisticated and opportunistic, and come from "well known" sources.
     
  • No Vocus NZ system has been exploited and we continue to proactively monitor for any issues (both externally and internally) via a wide range of security tools such as SIEM, NDR and EDR.

 

If you have any questions, please email security@vocusgroup.co.nz

 

 

 

All COVID related network restrictions have been removed. Future planned work will proceed as normal utilising the Vocus change management process.

 

Network Maintenance and Fault Restoration:

  • Network Operations Centre are operating in a BAU state and are monitoring all activities closely during this period.
  • Standard network fault escalation process applies through your normal business unit faulting paths.
  • If you have any questions please contact Vocus NZ NOC on 0800 999 997 or send an email to networkfaults@vocusgroup.co.nz
