Releases

Packages

Details

USN-3804-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK. Unfortunately, that update
introduced a regression when validating JAR files that prevented Java
applications from finding classes in some situations. This update
fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any Java
applications or applets to make all the necessary changes.
