The remote NTP server is affected by a remote code execution
The remote NTP server is affected by a buffer overflow condition due
to improper bounds checking on the 'readvar' argument. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially
crafted request that uses an overly long argument, to execute
arbitrary code with root privileges.
Disable this service if you do not use it, or check with the vendor
for an upgrade to a fixed version.
