Is Geneious Prime affected by the Log4j vulnerability?

**Update Jan 27 2022**

Geneious Prime 2022.0.2 has now been released and can be downloaded from here.  Log4j has been updated to the more secure version 2.17.1 in this release.  


We are aware of the recently publicized log4j vulnerability and have been working across our product and technology teams to confirm the status of our systems. At this time, we have been able to identify that Geneious Prime, Geneious Server and Geneious Biologics are not affected by this vulnerability.

Our information security and technology teams continue to monitor the state of this vulnerability and will continue to assess if/how it impacts Geneious and our products. If the status listed above changes, we will update this post.

    What is with the Geneious Flexnet License Manager? Is 2.1.4 vulnerable?

    The Floating License Manager does not use log4j so it is not affected by this vulnerability.
