What the heck is Log4j and why is it a threat to all of us?

What the heck is Log4j and why is it a threat to all of us?

"Not another cybersecurity attack?!"

(First, let me preface this blog by stating that as of today, December 22, 2021, no CMS Imaging systems have been impacted by Log4j malware.)

Yes, last week, it became evident that researchers had identified another large-scale cybersecurity issue. This attack was a malware insertion on a Java program named Apache Log4j. Log4j is a free tool used by many software programs to log information in places like your hospital network, personal cloud storage, and, unfortunately, medical equipment and software. The attack itself is being called Log4Shell, and it is set to become the most extensive and worst cybersecurity attack in history.
