The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
A vulnerability has been found and corrected in ntp :
A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ntpd daemon's NTPv4
authentication code. If ntpd was configured to use public key
cryptography for NTP packet authentication, a remote attacker could
use this flaw to send a specially crafted request packet that could
crash ntpd (CVE-2009-1252).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
Update the affected ntp, ntp-client and / or ntp-doc packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.0
Public Exploit Available : false
