A guide to responding to the Log4j vulnerability
Given the ubiquitous usage of the Log4j library in enterprise and open-source software, it’s been difficult for organizations to identify everywhere they might be compromised, allowing opportunistic attackers to continue leveraging the vulnerabilities for lateral spread.
Understanding where Log4j exists in your environment is no easy task, nor is mitigating it. To help, we’ve put together this practical guide with 4 steps you can take to better protect your organization from Log4j and other potential zero-day exploits. We’ll walk through each step in detail, including why it matters, what to look for, and how to remediate.
You’ll learn how to:
- Monitor for active signs of compromise
- Look for all installations of Log4j in your environment—at build and runtime
- Prioritize and remediate affected systems
- Continuously monitor your environment for exploit attempts from this event — and the others that will follow
