On December 10, 2021, our security personnel became aware of CVE-2021-44228, the Log4j vulnerability. We searched our source code repositories, found one that used Log4j, upgraded the library to the most recent version (2.15.0, which is not vulnerable) and deployed the change. On December 14, we upgraded again to 2.16.0, which addresses the CVE-2021-45046 Log4j vulnerability. Then on December 18, we upgraded to 2.17.0 and to 2.17.1 on December 29 which addresses CVE-2021-45105.
