Log4j2 vulnerability

New Contributor


Currently we are using Apache kafka 2.13-2.6.0 Version in our production and Currently (log4j-1.2.17) is installed on the server.

After a recent security scan, our vendor suggested upgrading to Log4j version 2.16.0 or higher since 1.x is an Unsupported Version(end of life) and a CVE-2021-4104 vulnerability.

Could you please suggest and provide the guidance to upgrade the log4j version at the earliest.
