    The latest security update of openjdk-7 caused a regression when
    applications relied on elliptic curve algorithms to establish SSL
    connections. Several duplicate classes were removed from rt.jar by the
    upstream developers of OpenJDK because they were also present in
    sunec.jar. However Debian never shipped the SunEC security provider in
    OpenJDK 7.
    
    The issue was resolved by building sunec.jar and its corresponding
    native library libsunec.so from source. In order to build these
    libraries from source, an update of nss to version 2:3.26-1+debu8u6 is
    required.
    
    Updates for the amd64 architecture are already available, new packages
    for i386, armel and armhf will be available within the next 24 hours.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    7u231-2.6.19-1~deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openjdk-7 packages.
