[USN-4607-2] OpenJDK regressions

Eduardo Barretto
==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4607-2
November 12, 2020

openjdk-8, openjdk-lts regressions
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-4607-1 introduced a regression in OpenJDK.

Software Description:
- openjdk-8: Open Source Java implementation
- openjdk-lts: Open Source Java implementation

Details:

USN-4607-1 fixed vulnerabilities and added features in OpenJDK.
Unfortunately, that update introduced a regression that could cause TLS
connections with client certificate authentication to fail in some
situations. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly handled deserializing Proxy
 class objects with many interfaces. A remote attacker could possibly use
 this issue to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a
 specially crafted input. (CVE-2020-14779)
 
 Sergey Ostanin discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly restricted
 authentication mechanisms. A remote attacker could possibly use this
 issue to obtain sensitive information over an unencrypted connection.
 (CVE-2020-14781)
 
 It was discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly handled untrusted certificates.
 An attacker could possibly use this issue to read or write sensitive
 information. (CVE-2020-14782)
 
 Zhiqiang Zang discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked for integer
 overflows. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain
 Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2020-14792)
 
 Markus Loewe discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked permissions when
 converting a file system path to an URI. An attacker could possibly use
 this issue to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2020-14796)
 
 Markus Loewe discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked for invalid
 characters when converting an URI to a path. An attacker could possibly
 use this issue to read or write sensitive information. (CVE-2020-14797)
 
 Markus Loewe discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly checked the length of
 input strings. An attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain
 Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2020-14798)
 
 It was discovered that OpenJDK incorrectly handled boundary checks. An
 attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass certain Java sandbox
 restrictions. (CVE-2020-14803)
