Technical Support

Questions relating to the Apache log4j (CVE-2021-44228) vulnerability:
Q. I still see log4j-2.8.2 files, even after I followed the manual mitigation instructions or applied the latest fixing level:
Am I still exposed to CVE-2021-44228?
A. These files do not indicate continued exposure to the vulnerability. The actual path varies from installation to installation, but the important part is workarea in the path. These JAR files do not contain executable code. They are directories which Liberty creates for its own internal caching. Liberty generally removes these directories following an upgrade. However, some Liberty versions leave these empty directories on the file system. These files pose no risk, but to get rid of them

1) Stop the Operations Center
2) Delete the entire workarea directory
Linux/AIX - /opt/tivoli/tsm/ui/Liberty/usr/servers/guiServer/workarea
Windows - ProgramFiles\Tivoli\TSM\ui\Liberty\usr\servers\guiServer\workarea
3) Start the Operations Center (Starting the Operations Center could take slightly longer than usual while Liberty rebuilds the cache)

Q. I have a log4j*-2.0.2.jar file on my machine. Can I still apply the mitigation instructions?
A. Yes, you can replace any 2.x.x version with 2.17.1. The older log4j JAR files are on v8.1.4 and earlier.
