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:

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.
