Over the weekend, you may have heard about the Log4j RCE or CVE-2021-44228 vulnerability. This Java logging package is used in a significant variety of software, so this vulnerability poses a serious cybersecurity threat to unpatched systems. A patch for CVE-2021-44228 has been released – however, due to the nature of this tool, there is no global patch that can be pushed to all instances at once: each vendor that uses Log4j must individually patch their specific software.
