August 10, 2018

openjdk-7 vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Java applications could be made to use excessive memory.

Software Description:
– openjdk-7: Open Source Java implementation

Details:

It was discovered that the PatternSyntaxException class in OpenJDK did
not properly validate arguments passed to it. An attacker could use
this to potentially construct a class that caused a denial of service
(excessive memory consumption).

package versions:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
icedtea-7-jre-jamvm 7u181-2.6.14-0ubuntu0.2
openjdk-7-jdk 7u181-2.6.14-0ubuntu0.2

openjdk-7-jre-headless 7u181-2.6.14-0ubuntu0.2
openjdk-7-jre-lib 7u181-2.6.14-0ubuntu0.2

After a standard system update you need to restart any Java
applications or applets to make all the necessary changes.
