Description Stefan Cornelius 2014-07-15 07:23:59 UTC
It was discovered that the Security component did not properly handle
data related to TLS and elliptic curves. An unauthenticated remote attacker
could exploit this to impact the availability of the Java Virtual Machine.

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2014-07-15 19:17:54 UTC
This issue affects Elliptic Curve (EC) cryptography implementation in OpenJDK.  The OpenJDK packages shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora do not enable EC support, and hence were not affected by this issue.

Comment 2 Stefan Cornelius 2014-07-16 12:27:01 UTC
Fixed now in Oracle Java SE 7.0u65 and 8.0u11 via Critical Patch Update July 2014. 

Fixed in IcedTea 2.5.1 for OpenJDK 7:

OpenJDK 7 Patch(es):
