The security baselines for the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) at the time of the release of JDK 8u212 are specified in the following table:
|JRE Family Version||JRE Security Baseline (Full Version String)|
The JRE expires whenever a new release with security vulnerability fixes becomes available. Critical patch updates, which contain security vulnerability fixes, are announced one year in advance on Critical Patch Updates, Security Alerts and Third Party Bulletin. This JRE (version 8u212) will expire with the release of the next critical patch update scheduled for July 16, 2019.
For systems unable to reach the Oracle Servers, a secondary mechanism expires this JRE (version 8u212) on August 16, 2019. After either condition is met (new release becoming available or expiration date reached), the JRE will provide additional warnings and reminders to users to update to the newer version. For more information, see 23.1.2 JRE Expiration Date in the Java Platform, Standard Edition Deployment Guide.
This release also contains fixes for security vulnerabilities described in the Oracle Critical Patch Update.
