It has been reported that openjdk8 <= 8.u40 is vulnerable to multiple serious issues including arbitrary code execution and sandbox restriction bypass.
I have attached the CVE IDs below, openjdk7 was already updated properly to mitigate those problems.

It is highly recommended to update openjdk8 to >= 8.u45 to mitigate the reported issues.
This task depends upon
