Spreadsheet-CFML 3.2.1 just released with log4j 2.16.0

I’ve just released Spreadsheet-CFML 3.2.1 which patches log4j again to 2.16.0 to address the new CVE-2021-45046.

It seems that POI (the java library behind the CFML library) may not be affected by either CVE anyway as it only depends on the log4j-api jar, not the core jar. From the Apache Log4j security page:

Note that only the log4j-core JAR file is impacted by this vulnerability. Applications using only the log4j-api JAR file without the log4j-core JAR file are not impacted by this vulnerability.

But out of an abundance of caution it’s probably best to apply the update if you’re using v3.1.0 or v3.2.0. It’s on Forgebox as well as Github.

Version 3.2.3 released with the log4j 2.17.0 patch. As I say, none of these updates appear to be necessary because the core jar isn’t present, but putting them out just as a precaution.
