“On the surface, the downward trend of Java SE patches would appear to be positive,” Apostolos Giannakidis, Security Architect at Waratek, told SecurityWeek. “However, several actions taken to fix Java SE vulnerabilities in the July CPU are likely to break the functionality of certain applications. Application owners who apply binary patches should be extremely cautious and thoroughly test their applications before putting patches into production.”
“The fix for the most critical Java SE vulnerability in the July CPU – CVE-2018-2938 – removes the vulnerable component (Java DB) from the JDK,” Waratek explained in a guidance note sent to SecurityWeek Wednesday. “Users that depend on this component must manually obtain the latest Apache Derby artifacts and rebuild their applications.”
