Original release date: December 17, 2021

CISA has issued Emergency Directive (ED) 22-02: Mitigate Apache Log4j Vulnerability], directing federal civilian executive branch (FCEB) agencies to address Log4j vulnerabilities—most notably, CVE-2021-44228.

Although ED 22-02 applies to FCEB agencies, CISA strongly recommends that all organizations review ED 22-02 for mitigation guidance. For additional details, see CISA’s webpage Apache Log4j Vulnerability Guidance.
