Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

When starting xntpd with the -u option and specifying the group by
using a string not a numeric gid the daemon uses the gid of the user
not the group. This problem is now fixed by this update.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-2496 to this issue.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
