The Digital Flaw You Didn’t Know About: Apache Log4j


Get Your Assessment ASAP and Be CIBR Ready

If you or your business operates any internet-facing system – from networks to smart devices – hackers could exploit a vulnerability found in common logging software called Apache Log4j. This is an open-source, Java-based program responsible for recording or ‘logging’ activity on your device, everything from error pages to the memory you may have used.

A tech researcher uncovered the bug, known as ‘Log4Shell,’ in early December 2021 and notified Apache developers. Government officials are urging companies to take immediate, corrective action and implement critical software upgrades to protect themselves. 

The major concern is Log4j’s prevalence. Logging is a fundamental feature of most software, from popular video games to cloud services like Apple iCloud and AWS. Many companies don’t know where or how Log4j is being used because it’s often bundled with other software.
