Description Tomas Hoger 2015-04-20 11:31:13 UTC
It was discovered that the java-1.8.0-openjdk packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux released via RHSA-2015:0809 (https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2015-0809.html) regressed the fix for the CVE-2015-0383 (bug 1123870) issue - "OpenJDK: insecure hsperfdata temporary file handling (Hotspot, 8050807)".  This regression makes it possible to exploit the original issue and allow local attacker to make other users of OpenJDK 8 packages to overwrite arbitrary file via a symlink attack.  Refer to bug 1123870 for technical details.
