[slackware-security]  ntp (SSA:2009-154-01)

New ntp packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0159
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1252


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/ntp-4.2.4p7-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to ntp-4.2.4p7.
  Stack-based buffer overflow in the cookedprint function in ntpq/ntpq.c in ntpq
  in NTP before 4.2.4p7-RC2 allows arbitrary code execution by a malicious
  remote NTP server.
  Stack-based buffer overflow in the crypto_recv function in ntp_crypto.c in
  ntpd in NTP before 4.2.4p7 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
  This does not affect the Slackware ntpd as it does not link with openssl.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0159
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1252
  (* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
