 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2015:140

 Package : ntp
 Date    : March 29, 2015
 Affected: Business Server 2.0

 Problem Description:

 Updated ntp packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 If no authentication key is defined in the ntp.conf file, a
 cryptographically-weak default key is generated (CVE-2014-9293).
 ntp-keygen before 4.2.7p230 uses a non-cryptographic random number
 generator with a weak seed to generate symmetric keys (CVE-2014-9294).
 A remote unauthenticated attacker may craft special packets that
 trigger buffer overflows in the ntpd functions crypto_recv() (when
 using autokey authentication), ctl_putdata(), and configure(). The
 resulting buffer overflows may be exploited to allow arbitrary
 malicious code to be executed with the privilege of the ntpd process
 A section of code in ntpd handling a rare error is missing a return
 statement, therefore processing did not stop when the error was
 encountered. This situation may be exploitable by an attacker
 Stephen Roettger of the Google Security Team, Sebastian Krahmer of
 the SUSE Security Team and Harlan Stenn of Network Time Foundation
 discovered that the length value in extension fields is not properly
 validated in several code paths in ntp_crypto.c, which could lead to
 information leakage or denial of service (CVE-2014-9297).
 Stephen Roettger of the Google Security Team reported that ACLs based
 on IPv6 ::1 (localhost) addresses can be bypassed (CVE-2014-9298).
 The ntp package has been patched to fix these issues.
