New about IT monitoring from the experts behind openITCOCKPIT

openITCOCKPIT 4.5.0 released


openITCOCKPIT version 4.5.0 has been released. Among other features are some major changes to the container permissions of host groups.

Major changes to host group container permissions

In versions prior 4.5.0, it was possible to assign hosts from the Root-Container, to a host group outside of the Root-Container. This leads to an inconsistent configuration state as soon as a user edits the configuration of a host. The form for editing hosts, will only show host groups, which are in the same container (or sub-container) as the host itself. This behavior is also adopted for the host group masks as well.

openITCOCKPIT Mobile released


New openITCOCKPIT Mobile Website

The brand new openITCOCKPIT Mobile website for Enterprise Edition users gives you an overview for your monitored devices at a glance – from everywhere! It is explicitly developed for Mobile devices.

openITCOCKPIT Mobile is deployed via Docker and can be hosted separately from openITCOCKPIT. It uses the openITCOCKPIT API with the API Key Authentication. To make things easier, we have integrated a new functionality in openITCOCKPIT, which allows you to scan the API Key as QR-Code.

openITCOCKPIT version 4.4.1 has been released. This version contains mainly compatibility features for the upcoming openITCOKPIT Mobile website.

openITCOCKPIT and Log4j - CVE-2021-44228


Is openITCOCKPIT affected by CVE-2021-44228?

No. openITCOCKPIT is not affected by the critical Log4j security vulnerability CVE-2021-44228. openITCOCKPIT itself is written in PHP and is not using or depending on any Java code.

Are any used components affected?

No. None of the backend components used by openITCOCKPIT is affected by CVE-2021-44228.

What about custom checks?

If you have installed any additional software on your openITCOCKPIT server like custom check plugins, you have to check these plugins by yourself. Even if it is very unlikely that a check plugin is implemented in Java, you should check your manually install plugins to be sure.

Why this post?

Many admins are concerned these days which software is using Log4j under the hood. We just want to inform you that openITCOCKPIT and all it used components are not affected and that no action is required.
