A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


USN-3804-1 introduced a regression in OpenJDK.

Software Description: - openjdk-lts: Open Source Java implementation - openjdk-8: Open Source Java implementation


USN-3804-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK. Unfortunately, that update introduced a regression when validating JAR files that prevented Java applications from finding classes in some situations. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
