Log4shell is a critical vulnerability in the widely-used logging tool Log4j, which is used by millions of computers worldwide running online services.
Intel’s top priority remains the security of our clients and products. Product teams are releasing remediations for Log4j 2.x as quickly as possible, moving to the latest version available when developing mitigations.
The Intel product portfolio is under investigation to determine if the products are affected by CVE-2021-44228 and CVE-2021-45046 which are mitigated by Apache Log4j version 2.16, or higher. The vulnerabilities in Apache Log4j identified by CVE-2021-44228 and CVE-2021-45046 involve Java-based logging software. As such, Intel hardware products and graphic driver products are not affected.
