Package        : apache-log4j2
Version        : 2.12.3-0+deb9u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-9488 CVE-2021-45105
Debian Bug     : 959450 1001891

Several security vulnerabilities were found in Apache Log4j2, a Logging
Framework for Java, which could lead to a denial of service or information
disclosure.

CVE-2020-9488

    Improper validation of certificate with host mismatch in Apache Log4j SMTP
    appender. This could allow an SMTPS connection to be intercepted by a
    man-in-the-middle attack which could leak any log messages sent through
    that appender.

CVE-2021-45105

    Apache Log4j2 did not protect from uncontrolled recursion from
    self-referential lookups. This allows an attacker with control over Thread
    Context Map data to cause a denial of service when a crafted string is
    interpreted.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
2.12.3-0+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your apache-log4j2 packages.
