Bank servers at risk over software gap


Banks and other entities are keeping a watchful eye on their computer servers following the detection of a security gap in Java software.

The Log4j or Log4Shell vulnerability can be exploited by hackers who want to take control or access information of web servers using the Java software. It’s anticipated that this latest cyber issue will continue into the new year and beyond as tech experts scramble to plug the hole.

Log4j is widely used in commonly deployed enterprise systems leaving individuals, governments and businesses vulnerable.
