Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas that cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

log4j 1.x jar's end of support dates passed. Move jar versions to 2.15 and above

When working with recently vulnerabilities(CVE-2021-44228, CVE-2021-4104) on log4j jars, identified BAW product uses older version 1.x jars and these are passed end of support dates.


Wells Fargo has a corporate directive to mitigate the CVE(CVE-2021-44228) by upgrade to log4j 2.15 IMMEDIATELY and will not accept the mitigations that involve changes to configuration files.


We understand that log4j1.x jars are used in the product not vulnerable CVE-2021-44228 and it is vulnerable to CVE-2021-4104 if JMSAppender feature is used. The outdated files are part of the product will be more riskier if any kind of vulnerabilities need to addressed in future.
