--

Multiple flaws were discovered in the 2D, CORBA, JMX, Libraries and RMI
components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use
these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2015-4760,
CVE-2015-2628, CVE-2015-4731, CVE-2015-2590, CVE-2015-4732, CVE-2015-4733)

A flaw was found in the way the Libraries component of OpenJDK verified
Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) responses. An OCSP response with
no nextUpdate date specified was incorrectly handled as having unlimited
validity, possibly causing a revoked X.509 certificate to be interpreted
as valid. (CVE-2015-4748)

It was discovered that the JCE component in OpenJDK failed to use constant
time comparisons in multiple cases. An attacker could possibly use these
flaws to disclose sensitive information by measuring the time used to
perform operations using these non-constant time comparisons.
(CVE-2015-2601)

A flaw was found in the RC4 encryption algorithm. When using certain keys
for RC4 encryption, an attacker could obtain portions of the plain text
from the cipher text without the knowledge of the encryption key.
(CVE-2015-2808)

A flaw was found in the way the TLS protocol composed the Diffie-Hellman
(DH) key exchange. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to
force the use of weak 512 bit export-grade keys during the key exchange,
allowing them to decrypt all traffic. (CVE-2015-4000)

It was discovered that the JNDI component in OpenJDK did not handle DNS
resolutions correctly. An attacker able to trigger such DNS errors could
cause a Java application using JNDI to consume memory and CPU time, and
possibly block further DNS resolution. (CVE-2015-4749)

Multiple information leak flaws were found in the JMX and 2D components in
OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to
bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2015-2621, CVE-2015-2632)

A flaw was found in the way the JSSE component in OpenJDK performed X.509
certificate identity verification when establishing a TLS/SSL connection
to a host identified by an IP address. In certain cases, the certificate
was accepted as valid if it was issued for a host name to which the IP
address resolves rather than for the IP address. (CVE-2015-2625)

All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to
take effect.
