Vulnerability Insight:
This update for openvswitch to version 2.7.6 fixes the following issues:

These security issues were fixed:

- CVE-2018-17205: Prevent OVS crash when reverting old flows in bundle
commit (bsc#1104467).

- CVE-2018-17206: Avoid buffer overread in BUNDLE action decoding

- CVE-2018-17204:When decoding a group mod, it validated the group type
