Further information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update Advisory page, listed in the References section. (CVE-2016-2183, CVE-2016-5546, CVE-2016-5547, CVE-2016-5548, CVE-2016-5549, CVE-2016-5552, CVE-2016-8328, CVE-2017-3231, CVE-2017-3241, CVE-2017-3252, CVE-2017-3253, CVE-2017-3259, CVE-2017-3261, CVE-2017-3262, CVE-2017-3272, CVE-2017-3289)

This update mitigates the CVE-2016-2183 issue by adding 3DES cipher suites to the list of legacy algorithms (defined using the jdk.tls.legacyAlgorithms security property) so they are only used if connecting TLS/SSL client and server do not share any other non-legacy cipher suite.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
