SuSE 11.3 Security Update : ntp (SAT Patch Number 9540)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76910
SynopsisThe remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe NTP time service could have been used for remote denial of service amplification attacks.
This issue can be fixed by the administrator as we described in our security advisory SUSE-SA:2014:001:
This update now also replaces the default ntp.conf template to fix this problem.
Please note that if you have touched or modified ntp.conf yourself, it will not be automatically fixed, you need to merge the changes manually as described.
Additionally the following bug has been fixed :
- ntp start script does not update the /var/lib/ntp/etc/localtime file if /etc/localtime is a symlink (bnc#838458)
