What Risks Are You Exposed To?
If you don’t regularly update your Java installations it will likely lead to performance, stability and security issues that will affect the applications running on your machine.
Based on cvedetails.com, 590 vulnerabilities have been reported for Oracle JDK since 2007, 7 of them related to Java 8 (affecting updates 121 and 192). Each new update includes additional security features: Update 191 includes, for example, 31 bug fixes.
Most of older versions of Java do not support the latest transport and encryption algorithms (e.g. TLS vs SSL). Only Java 11 supports the current TLS version 1.3 with one exception of Java 8 build from our partner . This creates a massive attack surface within an organization for hackers to exploit. It also means that not only are your systems at risk, but your data can be stolen while on the move.
