Log4j Vulnerabilities Update

Speak With A Security Expert Now

THE THREAT

The Apache Log4j vulnerability CVE-2021-45046 has been elevated from low severity to critical.

On December 17th, Apache updated their advisory stating that “the fix to address CVE-2021-44228 in Apache Log4j 2.15.0 was incomplete in certain non-default configurations.

CVE-2021-45046 was initially considered to be a Denial of Service (DoS) vulnerability. New research suggests that exploitation may allow a remote threat actor to achieve Remote Code Execution and steal sensitive data from vulnerable systems under certain conditions.

It is recommended that organizations ensure applications running Log4j are updated to the most recent release (2.17.1).
