This is a question about Java 8u51 update which has security fixes. We are evaluating if the vulnerability affects the jdk version we use.

What I want to know is :

For some CVE when it says 6u95,7u80 are affected, does it mean earlier versions (6u31,7u55, 7u71) are also affected? or they affect only the specific versions mentioned in "Supported Versions Affected" column of the table ?

My understanding is they only list the latest "update" version of each major version in those tables. Of course older versions have a different set of known vulnerabilities, so it isn't as if it is wise to be an older version.
What's gotten into you? Could it be this tiny ad?
