Bhargava Shastry discovered that Open vSwitch incorrectly handled certain OFP messages. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Open vSwitch to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-9214)

It was discovered that Open vSwitch incorrectly handled certain OpenFlow role messages. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Open vSwitch to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-9263)

It was discovered that Open vSwitch incorrectly handled certain malformed packets. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Open vSwitch to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 17.04. (CVE-2017-9264)

It was discovered that Open vSwitch incorrectly handled group mod OpenFlow messages. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Open vSwitch to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-9265).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
