Like many devs at the moment, looking for log4j2 on your server... how to do?

First I used the command

find / -name log4j2.xml -type f

Which in turn produced the following results





Ok, so log4j2 exists on the server the client is using... in Solr.  How about determining the version number?

The version here matters as 2.15.0 is good to go.  To find the version use

sudo find / -name 'log4j*'

The output of this command returns



The version being used is 2.11.2.  Now knowing the version is below 2.15.0, time to update.
