Does CVE-2021-44228 (Log4j vulnerability) also impact Silk Central?

I'm wondering whether version 20.5 (and other versions) of Silk Central can be vulnerable for CVE-2021-44228 (Log4j vulnerability aka Log4Shell) ?

So far I've only found that the Silk Central installation includes the Java library slf4j-api-1.7.26.jar but I'm not sure which logging framework it uses.

Any information about this will be greatly appreciated!


  • log4j-over-slf4j-1.7.26.jar is shipped with Silk Central. This jar does not have the log4j security issue reported in CVE-2021-44228 according to the slf4j website. 

    R&D have also confirmed that Silk Central does not have this vulnerability
