Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS : openjdk-8, openjdk-lts regression (USN-3830-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 119257


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


USN-3804-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK. Unfortunately, that update introduced a regression when validating JAR files that prevented Java applications from finding classes in some situations.
This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

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


Update the affected packages.
