A new zero-day vulnerability in the popular Java logging framework Log4j has been discovered which has the potential to affect Minecraft, iCloud, Steam and numerous other software products that use Java in their code.

Tracked as CVE-2021-44228, this type of vulnerability is especially dangerous as it can be exploited to run any code and requires very low skills for an attacker to pull off. Since Apache’s Log4j is almost ubiquitous in Java applications, immediate action is required by software maintainers who will need to patch it to prevent falling victim to any potential attacks.
