VPR Score: 5.9


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.


The time server daemon, timed, tries to synchronize the local host time with the time of other machines on a local area network. A bug in timed, as reported by the FreeBSD Security Officer, that could be triggered remotely can crash the time server daemon.


Update the affected timed package.
