Perfect for new year, here is a great article from the Guardian “100 ways to slightly improve your life without really trying”.

Better than making lame ‘join the gym’ resolutions!

 

Tip 2 – Using Data Loader?

Using Data Loader

Late last year it was announced that a major security flaw had been found in the Apache Log4j library which affected almost every computing organisation in the world – with Salesforce being no exception.

One of the benefits for Salesforce customers is that Salesforce can rapidly patch and rollout fixes across all its services meaning that for customers very little needs updating as we don’t have software from Salesforce running on our machines.

One small caveat to this however is the Data Loader application which does have this issue. Salesforce recently release a bulletin instructing customers and partners to download version 53.0.1 or later of the Data Loader (i.e. a version after December 20th 2021) to ensure that you stay safe.

So if you are a Data Loader user, best make sure you keep up to date! See here for the Help page..
