    Default cve-2021-44228 Log4J

    Hi,

    I don't see this question anywhere in the forums and the only reference to log4j is on a Third Party services. So I thought better ask than sit idle.

    does any part of ZenCart core files or baseline make use of Log4J? As you all know by know this has been identified as a zero day vulnerability CVE-2021-44228 .

    log4j is a component for Java servlets. Zen Cart is a PHP application.

    Also, many people confuse the programming language *Java* with the programming language *JavaScript*. The log4j issue only affects Java; you have nothing to worry about just because your website uses JavaScript.

    I knew all of this in advance but my IT and security folks wanted a confirmation.

    I could have easily said sure nothing to worry there and avoided sounding like noob. For accountability, I needed to show that did some checking before.

    It's all good. Many people ask the same question so it's great to have a canonical answer you can point to.
