Detailed Toll Update for Austria

We activated the updated detailed toll layers for Austria, referenced to

                   PTV Europe / World City Map Premium 2022.1H,

on our Layer Delivery Server (LDS). Now, it is possible to download the detailed toll layers via Content Update Service (CUS).

Content:  New toll rates valid from 1st of January 2022.

 

Using detailed toll on PTV Developer, xServer internet and xServer from version 2.22:

The default toll calculation changed to useDetailedToll = true in the xserver.conf. That means that you get the detailed toll automatically, when requesting toll in the route calculation.

 

Information for xServer from version 2.18 to 2.21:

Step 1: Activate the detailed toll download via content update service in you xserver.conf.

core {
     contentupdates {
              content {
                  detailedToll {
                      enabled = true
                      providerNames = [ "here" ]
                      countries = [ ]
                  }
          }
      }
 }

Step 2: Enable the detailed toll calculation in the xserver.conf or in your request.

xroute {
     tollOptions {
     useDetailedToll = true
     }
 }

The detailed toll is released for PTV xServer from version 2.18.  
Please be aware that from version 2.22 the parameter useDetailedToll is activated automatically. If you like to use the basic toll you need to set it to false.

New year – new log4j Version!

First of all happy new year to everybody out there.
New year – new log4j Version!

On December 28th the new CVE-2021-44832 concerning log4j 2.17.0 has been newly disclosed.

Since we shipped the newest versions of the PTV xServer 1.34.0.3/4 family (see blog post from 22.12.2021) as well as the PTV xServer 2.25.3 (see blog post from 20.12.2021) with Log4j version 2.17.0 just before Christmas, these versions are potentially affected by this new CVE.

Should we be worried about this?

First, when looking at https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/security.html the severity of CVE-2021-44832 is classified as moderate as the attacker must have permissions to modify the log4j configuration file.

After a detailed analysis, we can say that no products hosted by PTV which are vulnerable to CVE-2021-44832 have been identified.

For all customers running PTV products, including the log4j version 2.17.0 on premise, please just make sure that no unauthorized person has write access to the log4j config file of your system. For PTV xServer installations, you can find the log4j config files (logging.xml and logging-module.xml) in the “conf” directory of your PTV xServer installation.

Because we think that the current CVE does not represent a critical problem for PTV products, we expect to update the latest versions of PTV xServer Family 1.34.0.3/4 and PTV xServer 2.25.3 (currently including log4j Version 2.17.0) to the next log4j 2.17.1 not before February 2022.

Of course, we will continue to follow the developments around log4j for you and keep you informed about further news.

Concerning further technical questions, please contact your Product Support.
