    Package        : ntp
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9297
    
    Marc Deslauriers reported that the patch applied to ntp for CVE-2014-9297
    in DSA 3154-1 was incomplete. This update corrects that problem. For
    reference, the relevant part of the original advisory text follows.
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the ntp package, an
    implementation of the Network Time Protocol. The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-9297
    
        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 (ntpd crash).
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-2+deb7u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ntp packages.
