    openjdk-8, openjdk-lts vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 20.10
    - Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in OpenJDK.
    
    Software Description:
    - openjdk-8: Open Source Java implementation
    - openjdk-lts: Open Source Java implementation
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly handled deserializing Proxy
    class objects with many interfaces. A remote attacker could possibly use
    this issue to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a
    specially crafted input. (CVE-2020-14779)
    
    Sergey Ostanin discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly restricted
    authentication mechanisms. A remote attacker could possibly use this
    issue to obtain sensitive information over an unencrypted connection.
    (CVE-2020-14781)
    
    It was discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly handled untrusted certificates.
    An attacker could possibly use this issue to read or write sensitive
    information. (CVE-2020-14782)
    
    Zhiqiang Zang discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked for integer
    overflows. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain
    Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2020-14792)
    
    Markus Loewe discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked permissions when
    converting a file system path to an URI. An attacker could possibly use
    this issue to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2020-14796)
    
    Markus Loewe discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked for invalid
    characters when converting an URI to a path. An attacker could possibly
    use this issue to read or write sensitive information. (CVE-2020-14797)
    
    Markus Loewe discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked the length of
    input strings. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain
    Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2020-14798)
    
    It was discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly handled boundary checks. An
    attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain Java sandbox
    restrictions. (CVE-2020-14803)
