SD Times Open-Source Project of the Week: SafeLog4j

SafeLog4j is an open-source tool that can detect and verify vulnerable Log4j applications and protect them.

This project comes after a 0-day exploit in the Java logging library, Log4j (version 2) was discovered on December 9. The vulnerability resulted in Remote Code Execution by logging a certain string.
