    Package        : ntp
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2496
    
    SuSE developers discovered that ntp confuses the given group id with
    the group id of the given user when called with a group id on the
    commandline that is specified as a string and not as a numeric gid,
    which causes ntpd to run with different privileges than intended.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.2.0a+stable-2sarge1.
    
    The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by this problem.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ntp-server package.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
