Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2015-06-30 22:49:40 UTC
From URL:
----
NTF's NTP Project has been notified of a minor vulnerability in the processing of a crafted remote-configuration packet. Remote configuration is disabled by default. This issue was discovered and reported by Aleksis Kauppinen of Codenomicon. 
Summary: Under limited and specific circumstances an attacker can send a crafted packet to cause a vulnerable ntpd instance to crash. This requires each of the following to be true:
    ntpd set up to allow for remote configuration (not allowed by default), and
    knowledge of the configuration password, and
    access to a computer entrusted to perform remote configuration. 
----
Affects: 4.2.5p3 up to, but not including 4.2.8p3-RC1, and 4.3.0 up to, but not including 4.3.25 
The site reads: "ntp-4.2.8p3 was released on 29 June 2015, and addresses leap-second issues and a minor security issue." There may be leap-second bugs in previous versions of ntp fixed by the new release.

Maintainers, please import 4.2.8p3. Thanks.

Reproducible: Always

With base-system owning this, can this be cleaned up. Or can security clean up. We have quite a few vulnerable versions in tree.

Arches and Maintainer(s), Thank you for your work.
