Hi List,

I see on CentOS 7 it has log4j-1.2.17...
Is ok 2 use. I know the CVE was against 2.0 fwd but not knowing if
something was backported to 1.2 ?


log4j Version 1.2 is definitely *NOT* OK to use.

The Apache website https://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/ says:
"On August 5, 2015 the Logging Services Project Management Committee
  announced that Log4j 1.x had reached end of life."

There is already an unpatched CVE from 2019 for log4j 1.2.

It's really time to upgrade.

Kind regards,

This is the standard version that comes with CentOS 7 and is the latest available as of a yum update just now.
