=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for openvswitch is now available for Red Hat OpenStack Platform
11.0 (Ocata).

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
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:

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11.0 - 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.

Security Fix(es):

* An unsigned integer wrap around that led to a buffer over-read was found
when parsing OFPT_QUEUE_GET_CONFIG_REPLY messages in Open vSwitch (OvS). An
attacker could use this issue to cause a remote denial of service attack.
(CVE-2017-9214)

* While parsing an OpenFlow role status message Open vSwitch (OvS), a call
to the abort() function for undefined role status reasons in the function
'ofp_print_role_status_message' in 'lib/ofp-print.c' could be misused for a
remote denial of service 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 issue was found in Open vSwitch (OvS) which emerged
while parsing the GroupMod OpenFlow messages sent from the controller. The
issue could enable an attacker to cause a denial of service type of attack.
(CVE-2017-9265)
