As you may be aware, a vulnerability was announced recently in Log4j, a widely used logging library used by companies around the world. In an abundance of caution, we have temporarily taken our services offline while rolling out security patches to address this.
We expect services to be down for a number of hours. We apologize for any inconvenience, and we’ll provide updates as we have them.
