    New ntp packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
    fix a security issue.
    Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
    patches/packages/ntp-4.2.8p13-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
      This release fixes a bug that allows an attacker with access to an explicitly
      trusted source to send a crafted malicious mode 6 (ntpq) packet that can
      trigger a NULL pointer dereference, crashing ntpd.
      It also provides 17 other bugfixes and 1 other improvement.
