Mother of all vulnerabilities – log4j

Posted on Posted in Chapter News, Current, Meetings

Session Summary:

What does Minecraft have in common with 58% of the organizations on the internet? Vulnerability to the log4j attack.

By now I’m sure all of you are aware of the “Mother of all vulnerabilities” log4j. I’m sure many of you had some sleepless nights in mid-December as you and your organizations dealt with exposure, patching and ensuring security controls were in place. However, the log4j vulnerability will be an issue for the foreseeable future and continue to be exploited. Let’s take a quick look at the early log4j impact, then how Check Point’s Infinity architecture addressed this issue.


Anthony (Tony) Sabaj is currently the Head of Channel Security Engineering for the Americas at Check Point and member of the Office of the CTO, with over 25 years of experience in the Cyber/Information/Network security industry.  Tony has been at Check Point since 2002 in a variety of sales and technical roles including starting and building the Channel Team in North America.  Prior to joining Check Point Tony was a Senior Product Manager at Telenisus, a startup MSSP/VAR in Chicago. In 2001 the MSSP business of Telenisus was sold to Verisign to start their MSSP business and the VAR business was sold to Forsythe(Sirius) to start their Security Practice. Tony joined Forsythe shortly after that acquisition as a Security Consultant and Certified Check Point trainer.  Tony started his career with Arthur Andersen/Andersen Consulting, building their worldwide IP network, designing the security controls for the firm, and helping build their external Security Consulting Practice.
