What is Spring Framework?  
Spring-core is a prevalent framework widely used in Java applications that allows software developers to develop Java applications with enterprise-level components effortlessly. 


What did we do? 

In order to service our customers and partners the best way possible, we have investigated this vulnerability and the possible impact on the USoft products accordingly. We have concluded that USoft Platform, USoft Studio and USoft Solvinx do not make use of Spring.

However, it appears that part of it was included, in USoft 10 only, via a compile dependency that was not used. This dependency has now been excluded in the new USoft Platform release 10.0.1.F patch.  


What can you do?

Thus, although strictly not needed regarding the Spring vulnerability, upgrading to USoft 10.0.1.F makes sure not even a dependency on Java Spring exists. Note that this unused dependency does not occur in any other USoft version 9.1 and older.

The 10.0.1.F patch is planned to be released today, Friday, April 1st, late in the afternoon. The new release will be announced as always via our technical contacts at customers and partners with an email and via our community platform
