- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 1002813.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2021-44832.
- More information:
Apache Log4j2, a Java Logging Framework, is vulnerable to a remote code execution (RCE) attack where an attacker with permission to modify the logging configuration file can construct a malicious configuration using a JDBC Appender with a data source referencing a JNDI URI which can execute remote code. This issue is fixed by limiting JNDI data source names to the java protocol.
For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 2.12.4-0+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your apache-log4j2 packages.
