    Description

      I propose to update the text for the mitigation section of CVE-2021-44228 on https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/security.html

      Changes: add Log4j 1.x section, and format the Log4j 2.x section as a bullet point list for improved readability.


      Log4j 1.x mitigation: Audit your logging configuration to ensure it has no JMSAppender configured. Log4j 1.x configurations without JMSAppender are not impacted by this vulnerability. (Note that there is a separate CVE (CVE-2021-4104) for this vulnerability now.)

      Log4j 2.x mitigation: Implement one of the mitigation techniques below.

      The log4j-api JAR file in Log4j2 is not impacted by this vulnerability.
