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 Allocation of Resources Without Limits or Throttling. It was discovered that the TIFF plugin in the ImageIO component of OpenJDK did not restrict the amount of memory allocated when reading TIFF image files. A specially-crafted TIFF file could cause a Java application using ImageIO to allocate an excessive amount of memory disproportionate to the image size.

Remediation

Upgrade openjdk-jre to version 11.0.7, 14.0.1 or higher.
