Re: [orbit-dev] Eclipse Orbit Log4j Vulnerability Info


Gunnar is right that Eclipse Orbit is a repository to consume artifacts. The question should be "does Eclipse Orbit contain the latest secure Log4j 2 version"?

According to the latest news on that topic the answer is actually no. The latest integration build contains 2.17.0. But that version still contains a vulnerability which is fixed via 2.17.1.

So another update of Orbit is necessary if you suffer from the vulnerability. Can't tell if this is already in process.

Hi Murugaiyan,

The Eclipse Orbit project should be treated like Maven Central. Hence, it is not secure. The old version will still be available for download in the archives. 

However, the Log4J version has been updated by volunteers to the latest available one. Thus, mitigation is available.

Hello Orbit Team,
I work for BOSCH Group and we mostly use the Eclipse Framework to construct applications.
In the recent times globally everyone knew about the Apache Log4j contains some Security Vulnerability issue and as a result all of the issues have a mitigation action.
We found that Eclipse has a vulnerability state list for most of the projects it has built. (
However, I was unable to locate any information regarding the Eclipse Orbit Project.
Could you please help us out in clarifying whether Eclipse Orbit is secure ?
Thank you very much.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
