I'm sure what @stevenschlansker is describing is that Java 7 itself has
been EOL since April 2015: https://java.com/en/download/faq/java_7.xml

Although the openjdk-7 packages continues to be supported, it will not
receive any new critical patch or security updates, which leaves users
open to years-worth of vulnerabilities that have been fixed in Java 8.
