Security for robotics – Log4j implications 

December was a month that cybersecurity teams won’t forget. The Apache Software Foundation registered a CVE for a widely used Java logging library – Apache Log4j. A vulnerability that is easy to exploit and enables attackers to gain full control of affected servers.

Log4Shell will likely take years to remediate because of how widely the error-logging software component is used in applications and services. And while the Robot Operating System (ROS) infrastructure does not make use of Log4j, you might. 

Check out this Canonical’s blog to find the instructions for applying all available fixes to your Ubuntu system today. However, note that since separate copies of Log4j packages are also often bundled directly within the applications, we recommend that teams examine each one separately to determine whether they are bundling
