Details

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly validate types in some
situations. An attacker could use this to construct a Java class that could
possibly bypass sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2018-2825, CVE-2018-2826)

It was discovered that the PatternSyntaxException class in OpenJDK did not
properly validate arguments passed to it. An attacker could use this to
potentially construct a class that caused a denial of service (excessive
memory consumption). (CVE-2018-2952)

Daniel Bleichenbacher discovered a vulnerability in the Galois/Counter Mode
(GCM) mode of operation for symmetric block ciphers in OpenJDK. An attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2018-2972)
