   An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

   This update for log4j fixes the following issue:

   - Previously published fixes for log4jshell turned out to be incomplete.
     Upstream has followed up on the original patch for CVE-2021-44228 with
     several additional changes (LOG4J2-3198, LOG4J2-3201, LOG4J2-3208, and
     LOG4J2-3211) that are included in this update. Since the totality of
     those patches is pretty much equivalent to an update to the latest
     version of log4j, we did update the package's tarball from version
     2.13.0 to 2.16.0 instead of trying to apply those patches to the old
     version. This change brings in a new dependency on "jakarta-servlet" and
     a version update of "disruptor". [bsc#1193743, CVE-2021-45046]

   This update was imported from SUSE:SLE-15-SP2:Update.
