java-1.8.0-openjdk security and bug fix update


An update is available for java-1.8.0-openjdk. This update affects Rocky Linux 8. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE list 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): * OpenJDK: Loop in HttpsServer triggered during TLS session close (JSSE, 8254967) (CVE-2021-35565) * OpenJDK: Incorrect principal selection when using Kerberos Constrained Delegation (Libraries, 8266689) (CVE-2021-35567) * OpenJDK: Weak ciphers preferred over stronger ones for TLS (JSSE, 8264210) (CVE-2021-35550) * OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in RTFParser (Swing, 8265167) (CVE-2021-35556) * OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in RTFReader (Swing, 8265580) (CVE-2021-35559) * OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in HashMap and HashSet (Utility, 8266097) (CVE-2021-35561) * OpenJDK: Certificates with end dates too far in the future can corrupt keystore (Keytool, 8266137) (CVE-2021-35564) * OpenJDK: Unexpected exception raised during TLS handshake (JSSE, 8267729) (CVE-2021-35578) * OpenJDK: Excessive memory allocation in BMPImageReader (ImageIO, 8267735) (CVE-2021-35586) * OpenJDK: Incomplete validation of inner class references in ClassFileParser (Hotspot, 8268071) (CVE-2021-35588) * OpenJDK: Non-constant comparison during TLS handshakes (JSSE, 8269618) (CVE-2021-35603) For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section. Bug Fix(es): * Previously, OpenJDK's FIPS mode would be enabled if it detected that the system crypto policy was set to FIPS. This meant that containers running on a FIPS mode kernel would not enable FIPS mode without the crypto policy being changed. With this update, OpenJDK queries the NSS library as to whether FIPS mode is active or not. (RHBZ#2014201) * The use of the NSS FIPS mode by OpenJDK requires the JDK to login to the NSS software token. Previously, this happened indirectly as part of some crypto operations, but not others. With this update, the JDK logs in to the token on initialisation. (RHBZ#2014204) * While in FIPS mode, the NSS Software Token does not allow the import of private or secret plain keys. This caused the OpenJDK keytool application to fail when used with OpenJDK in FIPS mode. With this update, OpenJDK will now import such keys into the NSS database. This behaviour may be disabled using -Dcom.redhat.fips.plainKeySupport=false. (RHBZ#2014193)
