Impact on Exterro Products

None of the Exterro’s forensic product line is impacted by Log4J since none of our products are Java based except PRTK/DNA, KFF and Collab. However all three of those use JAVA/SL4J with logback (logging) back end. Due to this configuration, our customers shall not be impacted.

Note: log4j jar It will not impact until it’s explicitly configured. Default configuration is "Logback”.
