Splunking Games and Log4J Vulnerabilities | Edinburgh Splunk User Group - Virtual Edition

Jan 18, 2022, 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Edinburgh Splunk User Group

Join us virtually for a discussion on the recent Log4J Vulnerability (log4Shell) and Splunk's reaction to it, and how you can have extra fun with Video Games by Splunking them for data and visualisations.

About this event

Join the first (virtual) Edinburgh Splunk User Group session of 2022 as we discuss and demonstrate two topics.

The first will see a discussion of the recent Log4J vulnerability that has very rapidly hit the logging world. Tom Wise will discuss Splunk's reaction and investigations into the matter.

Secondly, Andrew will show off a less serious matter, in the form of playing and Splunking Forza Horizon 4, which is set in our home city, among other games with similar capabilities. 

We will also host a round table regarding Splunk in general, so if you have any questions you want answered, feel free to ask away at our event.
