I see in the Mathworks Trust Center you have posted a response to CVE-2021-44228 Log4j vulnerability. A scan of our Matlab installation reveals Log4J version 2.12.0 in folder:
\MATLAB\SupportPackages\R2021a\aIDE\lib
I believe this is related to the installed Arduino hardware support package. This looks like the same file version shipped with the Arduino IDE version 1.8.16.
Does the Trust Center statement cover this and similar Arduino support packages?

We are aware of this vulnerability. The issue arises from use of the third-party Arduino toolchain and IDE that is required by our support package.
We are intending to update Arduino IDE that our Support Package uses as soon as feasible
