Synopsis

Description

- CVE-2021-2163: Fixed incomplete enforcement of JAR signing disabled algorithms (bsc#1185055)

- CVE-2021-2161: Fixed incorrect handling of partially quoted arguments in ProcessBuilder (bsc#1185056)

moved mozilla-nss dependency to java-11-openjdk-headless package, this is necessary to be able to do crypto with just java-11-openjdk-headless installed (bsc#1184606).
