No versions of an amazon linux java virtual machine (jvm) are affected by( CVE-2021-44228 or( CVE-2021-45046.
However, if customers load a log4j version that is affected by( CVE-2021-44228 or( CVE-2021-45046 into an amazon linux jvm, it will introduce the issues identified in( CVE-2021-44228 and( CVE-2021-45046 into the jvm.
This update modifies amazon linux packages that provide a jvm to also install the aws-developed hotpatch to mitigate( CVE-2021-44228 or( CVE-2021-45046 by default.
For more information on the hotpatch package in amazon linux, see https://alas.aws.amazon.com/announcements/2021-001.html
