SUSE SLES10 Security Update : xntp (SUSE-SU-2015:0322-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

xntp has been updated to fix two security issues :

- CVE-2014-9298: ::1 can be spoofed on some OSes, so ACLs
based on IPv6 ::1 addresses can be bypassed
(bnc#911792).

- CVE-2014-9297: vallen is not validated in several places
in ntp_crypto.c, leading to potential info leak
(bnc#911792).

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