Description Tomas Hoger 2018-04-14 20:39:14 UTC
It was discovered that the implementation of the Container class in the AWT component of OpenJDK did not limit the amount of memory allocated when creating object instance from a serialized form.  A specially-crafted input could cause a Java application to use an excessive amount of memory when deserialized.
