How do you know if the jar sitting on your system is a threat or not? For
example, say it's not being used today but someone installs a product
tomorrow or enables a service that uses it? It would seem that the
existence of the object at all in the "unfixed realm" would be a hit on the
list of vulnerabilities? Right? I am assuming protocol demands removal of
all unpatched copies, then comes my question, if we "find a few copies"
identifying what might use them seems challenging. Patching various
products is not going to be a near-term option for a lot of us. Any ideas
on a comprehensive approach? Overkill?
copied text "Any Log4J version prior to v2.15.0 is affected by this
specific issue.

The version 1 branch of Log4J is vulnerable to other RCE attacks and should
be updated."

Thanks,

I will note that if you follow those directions, you are scanning for
version 2* of the software. That is not found on my V7R3 system, but
version log4j-1.2.15.jar is. That is an out of date version, per Apache,
and will not be addressed by them.

For those curious, I found it under
/qibm/proddata/OS/WebServices/internal/engines/org.apache.axis2-15/WEB-INF/lib/log4j-1.2.15.jar.
