Just what we needed on the heels of the Log4j vulnerability, another remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability - see link below.

It feels like we are drowning in vulnerabilities and the life rafts are scarce. The energy industry could benefit greatly by following the advice of EEI and require software vendors to provide SBOM's as apart of the procurement contract negotiations. Once an SBOM is in hand a software customer can follow the NATF Security Assessment Model and NIST SP 800-161 R2 Appendix F guidelines for supply chain risk assessment best practices using SBOM, see this Energy Central article for details.
