Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated java-1.8.0-oracle packages that fix several security issues 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.

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the Oracle Java Runtime Environment and the Oracle Java Software Development Kit. Further information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update Advisory page, listed in the References section.
(CVE-2015-7575, CVE-2015-8126, CVE-2015-8472, CVE-2016-0402, CVE-2016-0448, CVE-2016-0466, CVE-2016-0475, CVE-2016-0483, CVE-2016-0494)

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.
