  • DirectAdmin doesn't use Log4j anywhere, so there is nothing for us to announce or fix. :smile:

  • The funny thing is that minecraft servers are vulnerable :D

    Third place I've seen this tonight. Never in my life heard of log4j. Feels like the notices outweigh the installs 😂

    Guess you've never heard of left-pad then?

    It's one of those libraries that used by a lot of stuff I think. When scanning for this at work yesterday we think we've found it tucked away in Nutch - fortunately looks like it's the unaffected 1.2 version.

    Possible if you never worked in "enterprise" IT. A lot is still Java and i never encountered a Java application that doesn't use log4j.

    Oh. You will be surprised...

    So many enterprise java applications scaled to 1000s of customers had logging via System.out.println is mind boggling...

    They are laughing now.... for not using log4j

    Haha yeah it's a popular library though that handles logging. I've used it in a webapp I built. It's pretty decent at what it does.

    It’s in fucking Solr and the npm JSS Proxy too. Bang goes my weekend.

    Using the Log4J exploit, an unidentified actor managed to wrestle control of HP's AMD-based 9000 EPYC servers, turning the powerful hardware into cryptocurrency miners.

    The Log4J Raptoreum mining exploit started December 9th until it mostly ended on December 17th. During this period hackers were able to collect approximately 30% of the total block reward which is roughly 3.4 million Raptoreum (RTM), worth around $110,000 USD as of 12/21/2021.`
