We have been seeing the same crashes mentioned in a previous email [1] 
to this list. For one of our customers this crash is affecting 
approximately 1% of all java invocations.

We have been able to confirm that crashes do go away after backing out 
JDK-8279219 [4][5].

We are advocating for a patch release ( to address this issue. 
We don't believe it is appropriate to roll back given there was a high 
severity CVE addressed in 11.0.16.

Regarding 17 and 18, we are working on a reproducer. We believe this 
issue affects them as well.

This is the error reported initially as JDK-8291665 [2] (and also as 
JDK-8291919 [3] which was closed as duplicate).
