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

high Nessus Plugin ID 83685
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.

Solution

Update the affected xntp packages
