What’s New: Detecting Apache Log4j vulnerabilities with Microsoft Sentinel – Microsoft Tech Community

Microsoft added a preview solution in Microsoft Sentinel that helps IT pros find signs of Log4j exploits, according to a Thursday announcement and Twitter post.   The Log4j exploit detection preview solution is available through Microsoft Sentinel’s Content Hub. Oddly, organizations with Microsoft Sentinel subscriptions from Microsoft Azure Cloud Solution Provider partners have to manually install this preview, if wanted, per comments in the announcement.

Microsoft’s security research teams have been tracking threats taking advantage of the remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in Apache Log4j 2 referred to as “Log4Shell” and tracked as CVE-2021-44228. The vulnerability allows unauthenticated remote code execution and is triggered when a specially crafted string provided by the attacker through a variety of different input vectors is parsed and processed by the Log4j 2 vulnerable component.
