1. Summary:

An update for openvswitch is now available for Fast Datapath for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.

of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Channel to provide early releases to layered products - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

Open vSwitch provides standard network bridging functions and support for
the OpenFlow protocol for remote per-flow control of traffic.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
openvswitch (2.7.2). (BZ#1472854)

Security Fix(es):

* An unsigned int wrap around leading to a buffer over-read was found when
parsing OFPT_QUEUE_GET_CONFIG_REPLY messages in Open vSwitch (OvS). An
attacker could use this flaw to cause a remote DoS. (CVE-2017-9214)

* In Open vSwitch (OvS), while parsing an OpenFlow role status message
there is a call to the abort() function for undefined role status reasons
in the function `ofp_print_role_status_message` in `lib/ofp-print.c` that
may be leveraged toward a remote DoS attack by a malicious switch.
(CVE-2017-9263)

* A buffer over-read was found in the Open vSwitch (OvS) firewall
implementation. This flaw can be triggered by parsing a specially crafted
TCP, UDP, or IPv6 packet. A remote attack could use this flaw to cause a
Denial of Service (DoS). (CVE-2017-9264)

* A buffer over-read flaw was found in Open vSwitch (OvS) while parsing the
group mod OpenFlow messages sent from the controller. An attacker could use
this flaw to cause a Denial of Service (DoS). (CVE-2017-9265)

4. Solution:
