Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/ntp-4.2.8p2-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  In addition to bug fixes and enhancements, this release fixes the
  following medium-severity vulnerabilities involving private key
  * ntpd accepts unauthenticated packets with symmetric key crypto.
  * Authentication doesn't protect symmetric associations against DoS attacks.
