Is the repair tool affected by the Log4j exploit?

As you run Windows Repair in Safe Mode with Networking, it should be okay, but have you updated Log4j to version 2.15.0 to help mitigate the exploit ?

No log4j file can be found in the Repair Tool, so it is unaffected.

By the way, the latest version to apply for other vulnerable products is here:

Thanks, neroilo - that was worth a Karma point from me.

Curiously Apache released a new version 2.17.1 to fix another flaw.
The download link is the same as before.
