These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2018-2938: Difficult to exploit vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java SE (bsc#1101644).

- CVE-2018-2940: Vulnerability in subcomponent: Libraries.
Easily exploitable vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible data (bsc#1101645)

- CVE-2018-2952: Vulnerability in subcomponent:
Concurrency. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit (bsc#1101651)

- CVE-2018-2973: Vulnerability in subcomponent: JSSE.
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via SSL/TLS to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible data (bsc#1101656)

- RedefineClasses() tests fail assert(((Metadata*)obj)->is_valid()) failed: obj is valid

- NMT is not enabled if NMT option is specified after class path specifiers

- EndEntityChecker should not process custom extensions after PKIX validation

- SupportedDSAParamGen.java failed with timeout

- Montgomery multiply intrinsic should use correct name

- When determining the ciphersuite lists, there is no debug output for disabled suites.

- sun/security/mscapi/SignedObjectChain.java fails on Windows

- On Windows Swing changes keyboard layout on a window activation

- IfNode::range_check_trap_proj() should handler dying subgraph with single if proj

- Even better Internet address support

- Newlines in JAXB string values of SOAP-requests are escaped to ' '

- TestFlushableGZIPOutputStream failing with IndexOutOfBoundsException

- Unable to use JDWP API in JDK 8 to debug JDK 9 VM

- Hotspot crash on Cassandra 3.11.1 startup with libnuma 2.0.3

- Performance drop with Java JDK 1.8.0_162-b32

- Upgrade time-zone data to tzdata2018d
