Hi Team,

We are using Jira version which has “log4j2-stacktrace-origins-2.2-atlassian-2.jar” installed in lib. Is this version of jar impacted because of  log4j2 vulnerability CVE-2021-44228?

If it is impacted, what is the remediation ? is there any workaround?

Hi @Bakiyaraj Periyasamy . 

You are only affected if you are using JMSAppender. Therefore simply looking if <install-directory>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/ has this is the way to determine if you are vulnerable, regardless of the Jira version you are using. You may review the following KB with regards to this:

By default this is not present in Jira. Therefore please check if your contains this. If so, then the mitigation steps would be to comment out org.apache.log4j.JMSAppender to disable this temporarily.
