Package: ntp
Vulnerability: remote root exploit
Debian-specific: no

Przemyslaw Frasunek <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> reported that ntp
daemons such as that released with Debian GNU/Linux are vulnerable to a
buffer overflow that can lead to a remote root exploit. A previous
advisory (DSA-045-1) partially addressed this issue, but introduced a
potential denial of service attack. This has been corrected for Debian
2.2 (potato) in ntp version 4.0.99g-2potato2.

We recommend you upgrade your ntp package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
