Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA801] DSA-801-1 ntp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-801-1 ntp

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

SuSE developers discovered that ntp confuses the given group id with
the group id of the given user when called with a group id on the
commandline that is specified as a string and not as a numeric gid,
which causes ntpd to run with different rights than intended.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.2.0a+stable-2sarge1.
The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by this problem.
We recommend that you upgrade your ntp-server package.
