Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2018-03-09 15:36:08 UTC
CVE-2018-7183 (
  Buffer overflow in the decodearr function in ntpq in ntp 4.2.8p6 through
  4.2.8p10 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by leveraging an
  ntpq query and sending a response with a crafted array.

@Maintainers could you confirm if we are affected in stable version 4.2.8_p10-r1?

Thank you
