Fedora 9 : ntp-4.2.4p7-1.fc9 (2009-5275)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 38962


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes a denial of service issue if autokey is enabled (default is disabled) and a crash in ntpq.

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.


Update the affected ntp package.
