Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2020-10-23 14:16:21 UTC
OpenJDK is announced to be affected by multiple vulnerabilities, the worst of worst could allow an attacker with network access to read a subset of Java SE-accessible data. The advisory lists <=15, <=13.0.4, <=11.0.8, <=8u262, <=7u271 as affected, so it appears we need a bump for -bin and -jre-bin's 8.x branch.

Comment 2 Georgy Yakovlev gentoo-dev 2020-10-23 22:28:59 UTC
I already bumped source versions of openjdk:8 and openjdk:11 yesterday.

so what's left is openjdk-bin:11 and openjdk-bin:8 on arm, but all of that unstable ~ anyway.

we can proceed with stabilization of 8.272 bin except x86, and source on amd64 arm64 ppc64 x86
Comment 3 Georgy Yakovlev gentoo-dev 2020-10-25 00:26:03 UTC
openjdk-bin:11 and openjdk-jre-bin:11 bumped, but should remain unstable ofc.
old versions will be cleaned up by the end of next week.

only 1 left is openjdk-bin:8 arm, no tarball yet, it's normal for it to arrive later.
