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 The outdated files are part of the product will be more riskier if any kind of vulnerabilities need to addressed in future.
