Description Tomas Hoger 2015-10-20 04:46:59 EDT
A flaw was found in the way the Libraries component of OpenJDK handled certificate revocation lists (CRL).  In certain cases, CRL checking code could fail to report that a certificate was revoked, causing the application to accept it as trusted.

Public now via Oracle Critical Patch Update - October 2015.  Fixed in Oracle Java SE 8u65.
