JDK-8295687: Better BMP bounds ## Major Changes ### JDK-8295687: Better BMP
bounds Loading a linked ICC profile within a BMP image is now disabled by
default. To re-enable it, set the new system property
`sun.imageio.bmp.enabledLinkedProfiles` to `true`. This new property replaces
the old property, `sun.imageio.plugins.bmp.disableLinkedProfiles`. ###
JDK-8293742: Better Banking of Sounds Previously, the SoundbankReader
implementation, `com.sun.media.sound.JARSoundbankReader`, would download a JAR
soundbank from a URL. This behaviour is now disabled by default. To re-enable
it, set the new system property `jdk.sound.jarsoundbank` to `true`. ###
JDK-8285021: Improve CORBA communication The JDK's CORBA implementation now
refuses by default to deserialize objects, unless they have the `"IOR:"` prefix.
The previous behaviour can be re-enabled by setting the new property
`com.sun.CORBA.ORBAllowDeserializeObject` to `true`. ###
[JDK-8269039](  https://bugs.openjdk.org/browse/JDK-8269039): Disabled SHA-1
Signed JARs JARs signed with SHA-1 algorithms are now restricted by default and
created as if they were unsigned. This applies to the algorithms used to digest,
sign, and optionally timestamp the JAR. It also applies to the signature and
digest algorithms of the certificates in the certificate chain of the code
signer and the Timestamp Authority, and any CRLs or OCSP responses that are used
to verify if those certificates have been revoked. These restrictions also apply
to signed JCE providers. To reduce the compatibility risk for JARs that have
been previously timestamped, there is one exception to this policy: - Any JAR
signed with SHA-1 algorithms and timestamped prior to January 01, 2019 will
not be restricted. This exception may be removed in a future JDK release. To
determine if your signed JARs are affected by this change, run: ~~~ $ jarsigner
-verify -verbose -certs ~~~ on the signed JAR, and look for instances of "SHA1"
or "SHA-1" and "disabled" and a warning that the JAR will be treated as unsigned
in the output. For example: ~~~ Signed by "CN="Signer"" Digest algorithm:
SHA-1 (disabled) Signature algorithm: SHA1withRSA (disabled), 2048-bit key
WARNING: The jar will be treated as unsigned, because it is signed with a weak
algorithm that is now disabled by the security property:
jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, MD5, RSA keySize < 1024, DSA keySize < 1024,
SHA1 denyAfter 2019-01-01 ~~~ JARs affected by these new restrictions should be
replaced or re-signed with stronger algorithms. Users can, *at their own risk*,
remove these restrictions by modifying the `java.security` configuration file
(or override it by using the `java.security.properties` system property) and
removing "SHA1 usage SignedJAR & denyAfter 2019-01-01" from the
`jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms` security property and "SHA1 denyAfter
2019-01-01" from the `jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms` security property.

* Wed Jan 25 2023 Andrew Hughes - 1:
- Update to shenandoah-jdk8u362-b09 (GA)
- Update release notes for shenandoah-8u362-b09.
- Drop JDK-8195607/PR3776/RH1760437 now this is upstream
- Require tzdata 2022g due to inclusion of JDK-8296108, JDK-8296715 & JDK-8297804
- Drop tzdata patches for 2022d & 2022e (JDK-8294357 & JDK-8295173) which are now upstream
- Update TestTranslations.java to test the new America/Ciudad_Juarez zone
- Fix broken links and missing release notes in older releases.
- Drop RH1163501 patch which is not upstream or in 11, 17 & 19 packages and seems obsolete
- Patch was broken by inclusion of "JDK-8293554: Enhanced DH Key Exchanges"
- Patch was added for a specific corner case of a 4096-bit DH key on a Fedora host that no longer exists
- Fedora now appears to be using RSA and the JDK now supports ECC in preference to large DH keys
