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

- Ubuntu 18.10 - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Java applets or applications could be made to expose sensitive information.

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


It was discovered that a memory disclosure issue existed in the OpenJDK Library subsystem. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information and possibly bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2019-2422)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 18.10:
openjdk-11-jdk 11.0.1+13-3ubuntu3.18.10.1
openjdk-11-jre 11.0.1+13-3ubuntu3.18.10.1
openjdk-11-jre-headless 11.0.1+13-3ubuntu3.18.10.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
openjdk-8-jdk 8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1
openjdk-8-jre 8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1
openjdk-8-jre-headless 8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1
openjdk-8-jre-jamvm 8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1
