CRS Reports – Systemic Vulnerabilities in Information Technology—Log4Shell

This week the Congressional Research Service published a report on the Log4Shell vulnerability (only one vulnerability at the time of the report’s preparation), Systemic Vulnerabilities in Information Technology—Log4Shell. As with most CRS reports, this is a non-technical look at a complex technical problem.

The most important portion of the report for the cybersecurity industry is the “Options for Congress” section. It outlines the generic steps that Congress could take to deal with this issue. There is not enough detail provided to actually craft a legislative response, but it does point congressional staffers in number of interesting directions.
