Log4j Vulnerability and Its Severity: What You Need to Know
This is a serious issue – The extensiveness and reach of the Log4j vulnerability is not to be ignored. Log4j is the most common tool used across a vast number of global networks for collecting information across computer networks, websites, and a multitude of applications. The vulnerability allows cyber threats to invoke remote code execution (RCE) on a target computer enabling them to install malware such as Mirai, create denial of service issues, take command and control of systems and more! Akamai has tracked exploitation attempts at 10 million attempts per hour. Patching and upgrading is not enough to mitigate, the severity and far-reaching impact of Log4j demands training, planning and monitoring.
It’s evident that cyberattacks are on the rise and will continue to be a growing threat in 2022 as cyber actors become increasingly more sophisticated and stealth in implementing their methodologies. Mission -critical infrastructures, including supply chains, manufacturing, health care, education and more, are becoming more vulnerable targets as a way for threat-actors to infiltrate networks, steal data, and shutdown other systems as part of a larger attack.
