Trust Center Updates
On March 31, 2022, Spring confirmed the zero-day vulnerability and released Spring Framework versions 5.3.18 and 5.2.20 to address it. The vulnerability affects SpringMVC and Spring WebFlux applications running on Java Development Kit (JDK) 9+.
What does this mean for OutSystems customers?
Based on our investigation, the OutSystems platform does not appear to be vulnerable to Spring4Shell based on how our software uses JDK 9+
- OutSystems 11 does not run on Java and is not affected by this vulnerability.
- OutSystems 10 customers running on on-premise Java stacks do not appear to be vulnerable based on the configuration of the OutSystems Platform and how it uses the JDK 9+ software.
Regardless, all customers should do a thorough investigation of their on-premise deployments to check for any vulnerable software within their stack.
What is OutSystems doing?
At OutSystems, the security of our platform and of our customers’ data is of the utmost importance and we are doing everything we can to stay ahead of the situation.
Our security team is monitoring the situation closely and following the recommended guidance from Spring. We will deploy any relevant patches as soon as they become available. At this time, we do not anticipate service disruptions as a result of these efforts.
We will provide any relevant updates on new developments for our customers here on the Security Portal.

While OutSystems allows customers to authenticate using Okta, we do not use Okta internally. As a result, at this point in time, we do not have any reason to believe we were affected.

Russia-Ukraine Conflict: OutSystems Situation Update
Q: How is OutSystems able to support its customers’ services during the conflict?
OutSystems service support is provided 24x7 from several different locations included in the existing OutSystems Business Continuity Management System. Global Support locations are located in Linda-a-Velha (Lisbon area), Proença-a-Nova (Center of Portugal), Braga (North of Portugal), Tokyo (Japan), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), and Boston (USA), but the company is still operating mainly in remote working locations inline with the COVID-19 pandemic strategy still running in multiple countries.
Q: Are OutSystems infrastructures affected by the Russia-Ukraine conflict?
OutSystems cloud relies on AWS and we do not provide services in Russia, Belarus or restricted Ukraine regions, therefore we do not foresee potential impacts for our customers.
Q: Does OutSystems have Employees in the conflict region?
OutSystems has only a small number of contractors located in Ukraine. We remain in close contact with and support those individuals. As such we do not anticipate any impact on the business.
Q: What procedures has OutSystems put in place to manage the Russia-Ukraine Conflict?
OutSystems doesn’t expect any disruptions in the support services or infrastructures and we currently do not see any indication of risks to business continuity, either from an operational, financial, or third party dependency (e.g. imposed sanctions) perspective. The OutSystems Business Continuity Plan aims to:
- Maintain OutSystems activity in view of the possible effects of the Russia-Ukraine Conflict, such as any absenteeism of our employees and the repercussions on OutSystems activities, customers, and on an employee’s family environment.
- Maintain the confidence and security of all OutSystems interested parties by implementing measures based on best evidence.
OutSystems Position Regarding the Conflict
As the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine continues to unfold, we all have a role to play to help those in need, especially the children affected by these recent events. At OutSystems we believe in the power of community and action, and have launched the Build for Peace program to support the Ukrainian people and refugees globally. The program will invite and unite the OutSystems Community, including customers, partners and employees, to build apps, volunteer skills, and provide job assistance, mentoring and training to refugees and those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
We are also proud to share that in the days following the initial invasion, members of the OutSystems Community came together to launch the We Help Ukraine platform, built on OutSystems. This global, community-led initiative connects Ukrainian refugees with support for housing, transportation, medical aid, legal services and more. OutSystems has provided platform licenses and many of our employees are volunteering their time and expertise to help.
In addition to Build for Peace, OutSystems is matching employee donations to approved charities that are working in a variety of volunteer capacities to help the people of Ukraine.
As members of the global community, our hearts go out to the people of Ukraine and refugees around the world, and we are focused on the safety and wellbeing of all who are affected by conflict.
