SUSE SLES12 Security Update : openvswitch (SUSE-SU-2017:2212-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 102626
SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for openvswitch fixes the following issues :
- CVE-2017-9263: OpenFlow role status message can cause a call to abort() leading to application crash (bsc#1041470)
- CVE-2017-9265: Buffer over-read while parsing message could lead to crash or maybe arbitrary code execution (bsc#1041447)
- Do not restart the ovs-vswitchd and ovsdb-server services on package updates (bsc#1002734)
- Do not restart the ovs-vswitchd, ovsdb-server and openvswitch services on package removals. This facilitates potential future package moves but also preserves connectivity when the package is removed (bsc#1050896)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
