Description

The nextvar function in NTP before 4.2.8p6 and 4.3.x before 4.3.90 does not properly validate the length of its input, which allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash).

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-ntp
  • suse-upgrade-ntp-doc
  • suse-upgrade-yast2-ntp-client
  • suse-upgrade-yast2-ntp-client-devel-doc

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
