Description of problem:
With bug 1284948 we've fixed an OpenJDK memory leak in the jdwp layer of the Java debugger interface. The included fix with bug 1284948 contains a potential race which may lead to crashes or invalid results. See the upstream bug for more information. On top of the fix for bug 1284948 we should also include the additional upstream fix of JDK-8181419 here:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Included in 7.3.z and 7.4 as part of July 2017 security update.
7.4 has shipped.
7.5 has shipped.
7.6 has shipped.
I believe this has been fixed. OpenJDK in RHEL is at 8u201. The upstream bug is included in 8u162 and up.
