Description

An update for java-1.8.0-openjdk is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The java-1.8.0-openjdk packages provide the OpenJDK 8 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 8 Java Software Development Kit.

Security Fix(es) :

  • An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security

Security Fix(es) :

* An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern
microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load
& Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It
relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in
the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address
to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and
subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor's data cache even
for speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit
(retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to
read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache side-channel
attacks. (CVE-2018-3639)

Note: This is the OpenJDK side of the CVE-2018-3639 mitigation.

Red Hat would like to thank Ken Johnson (Microsoft Security Response
Center) and Jann Horn (Google Project Zero) for reporting this issue."
