Apache Log4j2 <=2.14.1 JNDI features used in configuration, log messages, and parameters do not protect against attacker controlled LDAP and other JNDI related endpoints. An attacker who can control log messages or log message parameters can execute arbitrary code loaded from LDAP servers when message lookup substitution is enabled


CABI 7.1.x, CABI 6.4.x


CABI (all supported Spectrum versions) is not affected by this vulnerability.

Additional Information

As an additional way to check you can run the following command in Linux from CABI install folder


for i in $(find . 2>/dev/null | grep log4j | grep .jar); do echo $i; unzip -l $i 2>/dev/null | grep JndiLookup; done


You will see there are no files output that are vulnerable.


Jasper Server 7.9 and Jasper Studio 7.5  (not supported by Spectrum) are vulnerable, more information at this link
