Subject: CVE request: java hashdos vulnerability


Seems java is fixing HashDos finally:

They don't mention hashdos, but the interesting part is here:
"The enhanced hashing implementation uses the murmur3 hashing
algorithm[1] along with random hash seeds and index masks"

random hash seeds is what prevents hashdos.

Further info here:

Please assign CVE.
