On Windows

log4j2-scan [--fix] target_path

On Linux

./log4j2-scan [--fix] target_path

On UNIX (AIX, Solaris, and so on)

java -jar logpresso-log4j2-scan-3.0.1.jar [--fix] target_path

If you add --fix option, this program will copy vulnerable original JAR file to .bak file, and create new JAR file without org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class entry. All .bak files are archived into the single zip file which is named by log4j2_scan_backup_yyyyMMdd_HHmmss.zip, then deleted safely. In most environments, JNDI lookup feature will not be used. However, you must use this option at your own risk. You can easily restore original vulnerable JAR files using --restore option.

Depending the Operating System:

  • Windows: It is necessary to shutdown any running JVM process before applying patch due to lock files. Start affected JVM process after fix.
  • Linux/macOS: Apply patch, restart the JVM after

If you want to automate patch job, use --force-fix option. With this option, this program will no longer prompt for confirmation.

(mitigated) tag will be displayed if org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class entry is removed from JAR file.

If you add --trace option, this program will print all visited directories and files. Use this option only for debugging.

Scanned 5047 directories and 26251 files

How it works

Run in 5 steps:

  1. Find all .jar, .war, .ear, .aar, .rar, .nar files recursively.
  2. Find META-INF/maven/org.apache.logging.log4j/log4j-core/pom.properties entry from JAR file.
  3. Read groupId, artifactId, and version.
  4. Compare log4j2 version and print vulnerable version.
  5. If --fix option is used, backup vulnerable file and patch it.
    • For example, original vulnerable.jar is copied to vulnerable.jar.bak
  6. Archive all backup files into the zip file log4j2_scan_backup_yyyyMMdd_HHmmss.zip, then delete .bak files.

Exit code for automation

  • -1 failed to run
  • 0 for clean (No vulnerability)
  • 1 for found
  • 2 for some errors
