Webfocus 82 - Fix log4j 1.2 vulnerability and support for open JDK

Madhavan TR

Recommended Posts

1) We have noticed the vulnerable log4j being used by Webfocus. Any suggestions to avoid this vulnerability?

Apache Log4j 1.2.17 (ibiWebFOCUS82ReportCasterliblog4j-1.2.17.jar)

2) Can we use Open JDK for running our webserver (Apache Tomcat) or we need to use only Oracle JRE? Will there be any impact on webfocus ? If there is any certification matrix, please let us know. Note: We have web server and webfocus installed in the same machine

yes you can use open source versions of java

I‘m using https://adoptium.net/

For supported versions please check the installation manual of the WebFOCUS version you are using - as this depends on your version
