Security researchers are expecting 2022 to be a rough year.
Hackers can use a vulnerability in a tiny application called Log4j to install ransomware or malicious code onto the server/system running the software. Unfortunately Log4j is found in basically any application running on Java includes it.. which is a staggeringly large list.
Java is used as a programming language by some of the biggest corporations and government departments, so change won’t happen quickly.. which means these vulnerabilities are going to be open for some time.
My favorite thing to do when you’ve got a moment..
Change those passwords! Clean them up! Give the gift of a password manager this Christmas!
