The JNDI Strikes Back - Unauthenticated RCE in H2 Database Console

Very recently, the JFrog security research team has disclosed an issue in the H2 database console which was issued a critical CVE – CVE-2021-42392. This issue has the same root cause as the infamous Log4Shell vulnerability in Apache Log4j (JNDI remote class loading). H2 is a very popular open-source Java SQL database offering a lightweight in-memory solution that doesn’t require data to be stored on disk.

Detecting and Preventing Log4J Attacks with Cribl LogStream

Shortly before the December holidays, a vulnerability in the ubiquitous Log4J library arrived like the Grinch, Scrooge, and Krampus rolled into one monstrous bundle of Christmas misery. Log4J maintainers went to work patching the exploit, and security teams scrambled to protect millions of exposed applications before they got owned. At Cribl, we put together multiple resources to help security teams detect and prevent the Log4J vulnerability using LogStream.
