Package        : apache-log4j2
Version        : 2.12.4-0+deb9u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-44832
Debian Bug     : 1002813

Apache Log4j2, a Java Logging Framework, is vulnerable to a remote code
execution (RCE) attack where an attacker with permission to modify the logging
configuration file can construct a malicious configuration using a JDBC
Appender with a data source referencing a JNDI URI which can execute remote
code. This issue is fixed by limiting JNDI data source names to the java
protocol.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
2.12.4-0+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your apache-log4j2 packages.
