JFrog Releases OSS Tools to Identify Log4j Utilization in Both Binaries and Source Code
December 16, 2021

JFrog released free scanning tools specifically designed for developers to detect the presence and utilization of Apache Log4j in both source code and binaries. The four new tools are available for download immediately via GitHub in both Java and Python.

The new tools perform specialized scans to identify direct or indirect (transitive) dependencies, as well as instances where Log4j does not appear as a separate file, but rather is bundled inside a larger software package and harder to detect. The new tools are command line-based for easy integration with developers’ existing environments and their open-core helps ensure the capabilities will continue to evolve over time as needs change.

“The Log4j vulnerability has set the enterprise software landscape on fire due to its widespread usage as a component across the software supply chain, making it difficult to rapidly pinpoint and remediate,” said Asaf Karas, CTO of JFrog Security Research. “In times of crisis open-source tools that scan both binaries and source code allow community collaboration and contributions to collectively solve immediate and long-term security issues, which is why we’re proud to release these tools today.”
