On December 10th, Oracle released Security Alert CVE-2021-44228 in response to the disclosure of a new vulnerability affecting Apache Log4j prior to version 2.15.

Subsequently, the Apache Software Foundation released Apache version 2.16 which addresses an additional vulnerability (CVE-2021-45046). Mitigation instructions from Apache for these issues also evolved over time.

The Oracle cloud operations and security teams continue to evaluate all information related to CVE-2021-45046 and CVE-2021-44228.


This document provides information about the remedial status of Oracle cloud environments in response to vulnerabilities CVE-2021-44228 AND CVE-2021-45046 (e.g., Oracle Applications, Oracle NetSuite, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle Industry Clouds, etc.).

Note that remediation activities in these cloud environments have been ongoing since the initial release of the Alert, and some customers may have already received notifications of mandatory maintenance (if the maintenance resulted in a noticeable impact such as service interruption).
