Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in ntp: Requesting peer information from a malicious remote time server may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution . A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ntpd daemon"s NTPv4 authentication code. If ntpd was configured to use public key cryptography for NTP packet authentication, a remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially-crafted request packet that could crash ntpd . Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for Corporate products. The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
