     CVE-2021-35603

The java-1.8.0-openjdk packages provide the OpenJDK 8 Java Runtime
Environment and the OpenJDK 8 Java Software Development Kit.
 Security Fix(es):
  OpenJDK: Loop in HttpsServer triggered during TLS session close (JSSE,
   8254967) (CVE-2021-35565)
  OpenJDK: Incorrect principal selection when using Kerberos Constrained
   Delegation (Libraries, 8266689) (CVE-2021-35567)
  OpenJDK: Weak ciphers preferred over stronger ones for TLS (JSSE,
   8264210) (CVE-2021-35550)
  OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in RTFParser (Swing, 8265167)
   (CVE-2021-35556)
  OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in RTFReader (Swing, 8265580)
   (CVE-2021-35559)
  OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in HashMap and HashSet (Utility,
   8266097) (CVE-2021-35561)
  OpenJDK: Certificates with end dates too far in the future can corrupt
   keystore (Keytool, 8266137) (CVE-2021-35564)
  OpenJDK: Unexpected exception raised during TLS handshake (JSSE,
   8267729) (CVE-2021-35578)
  OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in BMPImageReader (ImageIO,
   8267735) (CVE-2021-35586)
  OpenJDK: Incomplete validation of inner class references in
   ClassFileParser (Hotspot, 8268071) (CVE-2021-35588)
  OpenJDK: Non-constant comparison during TLS handshakes (JSSE, 8269618)
   (CVE-2021-35603)
 Bug Fix(es):
  Previously, OpenJDK's FIPS mode would be enabled if it detected that the
  system crypto policy was set to FIPS. This meant that containers running
  on a FIPS mode kernel would not enable FIPS mode without the crypto
  policy being changed. With this update, OpenJDK queries the NSS library
  as to whether FIPS mode is active or not. (RHBZ#2014201)
  The use of the NSS FIPS mode by OpenJDK requires the JDK to login to the
  NSS software token. Previously, this happened indirectly as part of some
  crypto operations, but not others. With this update, the JDK logs in to
  the token on initialisation. (RHBZ#2014204)
  While in FIPS mode, the NSS Software Token does not allow the import of
  private or secret plain keys. This caused the OpenJDK keytool
  application to fail when used with OpenJDK in FIPS mode. With this
  update, OpenJDK will now import such keys into the NSS database. This
  behaviour may be disabled using -Dcom.redhat.fips.plainKeySupport=false.
  (RHBZ#2014193)
  
The java-11-openjdk packages provide the OpenJDK 11 Java Runtime
Environment and the OpenJDK 11 Java Software Development Kit.
