    Package        : openvswitch
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-2074
    
    Kashyap Thimmaraju and Bhargava Shastry discovered a remotely
    triggerable buffer overflow vulnerability in openvswitch, a production
    quality, multilayer virtual switch implementation. Specially crafted
    MPLS packets could overflow the buffer reserved for MPLS labels in an
    OVS internal data structure. A remote attacker can take advantage of
    this flaw to cause a denial of service, or potentially, execution of
    arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.0+git20140819-3+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.0+git20140819-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openvswitch packages.
