These security issues were fixed:

  • CVE-2018-2938: Difficult to exploit vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java SE (bsc#1101644).
  • CVE-2018-2940: Vulnerability in subcomponent: Libraries. Easily exploitable vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible data (bsc#1101645)
  • CVE-2018-2952: Vulnerability in subcomponent: Concurrency. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit (bsc#1101651)
  • CVE-2018-2973: Vulnerability in subcomponent: JSSE. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allowed unauthenticated attacker with network access via SSL/TLS to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible data (bsc#1101656)
