Overview

openjdk-jre is a free and open-source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE).

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Certificate Validation. A flaw was found in the way the Libraries component of OpenJDK handled blacklists of untrusted certificates. Alternate certificate encodings were not considered, causing certain certificate fingerprints to not be blacklisted, possibly leading to untrusted certificates being accepted.

Remediation

Upgrade openjdk-jre to version 7.0.281, 8.0.271, 11.0.9, 15.0.1 or higher.
