Wiz and EY (Ernest & Young) analyzed more than 200 enterprise cloud environments with thousands of cloud accounts. The results were striking: While 93% of all cloud environments are at risk from Log4Shell, on average organizations have patched 45% of their vulnerable cloud resources by Day 10.
Last November, Wiz Research mapped all the services in AWS that allow access from other accounts to see if any of them might inadvertently expose customers and discovered 3 vulnerabilities in different AWS services that allowed anyone to read or write into the accounts of other AWS customers.
With an estimated 90% of cloud workloads running Linux based OS, with sudo being common across distributions, many Linux cloud assets are at risk and may be affected. Versions released as far back as 2011 are affected by this vulnerability.
