   This update for log4j fixes the following issue:

   CVE-2021-44228: The previously published fix by upstream turned out to be
   incomplete. Therefore, upstream has recommended disabling JNDI support in
   log4j by default to be completely sure that this vulnerability cannot be
   exploited. This update implements that recommendation and disables JNDI
   support by default. [bsc#1193611, CVE-2021-44228]
