Due to the current Zero-Day Exploit Targeting Popular Java Library Log4j (https://www.govcert.admin.ch/blog/zero-day-exploit-targeting-popular-java-library-log4j/), I have created a new version of the JasperReportsIntegration (JRI).

You can find the details in this ticket: https://github.com/daust/JasperReportsIntegration/issues/87

From my point of view, JRI seems to be NOT vulnerable, since it uses log4j1.x for its internal logging.

The vulnerable libraries which are included with JasperReports itself can be removed, they are actually NOT USED. They just ended up in the .war file for technical reasons. But JasperReports only uses them for testing ... not for the actual runtime.

Thus, in the updated release, I have simply removed the libraries, you can do it yourself already now with JRI 2.7.0.
