are now available for Oracle Java for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and
7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Oracle Java SE version 8 includes the Oracle Java Runtime Environment
and the Oracle Java Software Development Kit.

Note: This update also disallows the use of the MD5 hash algorithm in
the certification path processing. The use of MD5 can be re-enabled by
removing MD5 from the jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms security
property defined in the java.security file.

All users of java-1.8.0-oracle are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which provide Oracle Java 8 Update 71 and resolve these
issues. All running instances of Oracle Java must be restarted for the
update to take effect.
