Log4J security issue

StatusClosed

There is a recent vulnerability reported for log4j:

https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/security.html

You can read more about that on articles like https://www.wired.com/story/log4j-flaw-hacking-internet/

Log4J is a library used by java applications for logging.

If you have installed it, it would be best to update it to a newer version.  Applications may depend on a particular version of the library, so it would be best to involve your developers in this change.

A command that may help find log4j related files is:
find / -type f 2>/dev/null | grep log4j
