Description

The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates :

CVE-2009-0159 Stack-based buffer overflow in the cookedprint function in ntpq/ntpq.c in ntpq in NTP before 4.2.4p7-RC2 allows remote NTP servers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted response.

CVE-2009-1252 Stack-based buffer overflow in the crypto_recv function in ntp_crypto.c in ntpd in NTP before 4.2.4p7 and 4.2.5 before 4.2.5p74, when OpenSSL and autokey are enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted packet containing an extension field.

CVE-2009-0021 NTP 4.2.4 before 4.2.4p5 and 4.2.5 before 4.2.5p150 does not properly check the return value from the OpenSSL EVP_VerifyFinal function, which allows remote attackers to bypass validation of the certificate chain via a malformed SSL/TLS signature for DSA and ECDSA keys, a similar vulnerability to CVE-2008-5077.

  • fix buffer overflow when parsing Autokey association message (#500783, CVE-2009-1252)

  • fix buffer overflow in ntpq (#500783, CVE-2009-0159)

  • fix check for malformed signatures (#479698, CVE-2009-0021)

  • fix selecting multicast interface (#444106)

  • disable kernel discipline when -x option is used (#431729)

  • avoid use of uninitialized floating-point values in clock_select (#250838)

  • generate man pages from html source, include config man pages (#307271)

  • add note about paths and exit codes to ntpd man page (#242925, #246568)

  • add section about exit codes to ntpd man page (#319591)

  • always return 0 in scriptlets

  • pass additional options to ntpdate (#240141)

  • fix broadcast client to accept broadcasts on 255.255.255.255 (#226958)

  • compile with crypto support on 64bit architectures (#239580)

  • add ncurses-devel to buildrequires (#239580)

  • exit with nonzero code if ntpd -q did not set clock (#240134)

  • fix return codes in init script (#240118)
