    Package        : ntp
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1798 CVE-2015-1799
    Debian Bug     : 782095
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in ntp, an implementation of the
    Network Time Protocol:
    
    CVE-2015-1798
    
        When configured to use a symmetric key with an NTP peer, ntpd would
        accept packets without MAC as if they had a valid MAC. This could
        allow a remote attacker to bypass the packet authentication and send
        malicious packets without having to know the symmetric key.
    
    CVE-2015-1799
    
        When peering with other NTP hosts using authenticated symmetric
        association, ntpd would update its internal state variables before
        the MAC of the NTP messages was validated. This could allow a remote
        attacker to cause a denial of service by impeding synchronization
        between NTP peers.
    
    Additionally, it was discovered that generating MD5 keys using ntp-keygen
    on big endian machines would either trigger an endless loop, or generate
    non-random keys.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-2+deb7u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:4.2.6.p5+dfsg-7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ntp packages.
