   An update that solves two vulnerabilities and has two fixes
   is now available.


   This 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)
