EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : java-1.8.0-openjdk (EulerOS-SA-2018-1194)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110858

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the java-1.8.0-openjdk packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks.(CVE-2018-3639)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected java-1.8.0-openjdk package.
