SuSE 11.3 Security Update : ntp (SAT Patch Number 10293)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

ntp has been updated to fix four security issues :

- ntp-keygen used a weak RNG seed, which made it easier
for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection
mechanisms via a brute-force attack. (bsc#910764).
(CVE-2014-9294)

- The config_auth function, when an auth key is not
configured, improperly generated a key, which made it
easier for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic
protection mechanisms via a brute-force attack.
(bsc#910764). (CVE-2014-9293)

- ::1 can be spoofed on some operating systems, so ACLs
based on IPv6 ::1 addresses could be bypassed.
(bsc#910764). (CVE-2014-9298)

- vallen is not validated in several places in
ntp_crypto.c, leading to potential information leak.
(bsc#910764). (CVE-2014-9297)
