Debian Previous advisory introduced apotential denial of service attack.

Debian Security Advisory DSA-045-2                                             Michael Stone
April 9, 2001

Package: ntp
Vulnerability: remote root exploit
Debian-specific: no

Przemyslaw Frasunek <venglin@FREEBSD.LUBLIN.PL> reported that ntp
daemons such as that released with Debian GNU/Linux are vulnerable to a
buffer overflow that can lead to a remote root exploit. A previous
advisory (DSA-045-1) partially addressed this issue, but introduced a
potential denial of service attack. This has been corrected for Debian
2.2 (potato) in ntp version 4.0.99g-2potato2.

We recommend you upgrade your ntp package immediately.
