Konstantin Gribov commented on TIKA-3019:
-----------------------------------------

[~tallison], there seems to be actually twofold issue with downstream users who depends on tika-app/server/eval using log4j 1.2.x: logging backend configuration and directly using log4j 1.x API (e.g. LogManager etc). As I don't use log4j logging backend I may overlook something.

It's unlikely that downstream folks would depend on tika-app/server, so I'll say that if we encounter someone really using it that way we advice to update or use log4j-1.2-api module (1.2.x bridge to 2.x API). If they don't use *internal* API it should be ok. See https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/migration.html and https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/compatibility.html. Most likely we will break programmatic configuration in this case (like someone use their own main class with -q/-v parameters).

As for configuration side downstream user could use {{log4j1.compatibility}} system property to use old configs but there're some caveats (like custom appender depends on some log4j12 implementation). Again, recommend to update or downgrade to 1.2.x like [~kkrugler] said with clear warning about CVE is all we can do here, I guess.

Also it seems this vulnerability in SocketServer will only affect those who wish to accept logging events via tcp from different services. I couldn't imagine such use for tika-app/server off the top of my head. Most likely we aren't affected by this CVE at all.

My vote is for migration to 2.x and pointing users to aforementioned migration/compatibility guides.

> *Description :*
> *Severity :* Sonatype CVSS 3: 9.8CVE CVSS 2.0: 0.0
> *Weakness :* Sonatype CWE: 502
> *Source :* National Vulnerability Database
> *Categories :* Data
> *Description from CVE :* Included in Log4j 1.2 is a SocketServer class that is vulnerable to deserialization of untrusted data which can be exploited to remotely execute arbitrary code when combined with a deserialization gadget when listening to untrusted network traffic for log data. This affects Log4j versions up to 1.2 up to 1.2.17.
> *Explanation :* The log4j:log4j package is vulnerable to Remote Code Execution [RCE] due to Deserialization of Untrusted Data. The configureHierarchy and genericHierarchy methods in SocketServer.class do not verify if the file at a given file path contains any untrusted objects prior to deserializing them. A remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability by providing a path to crafted files, which result in arbitrary code execution when deserialized.
> NOTE: Starting with version[s] 2.x, log4j:log4j was relocated to org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core. A variation of this vulnerability exists in org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core as CVE-2017-5645, in versions up to but excluding 2.8.2.
> *Detection :* The application is vulnerable by using this component.
> *Recommendation :* Starting with version[s] 2.x, log4j:log4j was relocated to org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core. A variation of this vulnerability exists in org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core as CVE-2017-5645, in versions up to but excluding 2.8.2. Therefore,it is recommended to upgrade to org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-core version[s] 2.8.2 and above. For log4j:log4j 1.x versions however, a fix does not exist.
