Description

A stack-based buffer overflow was discovered in ntpq. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious ntp server, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service in ntpq, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0159)

Chris Ries discovered a stack-based overflow in ntp. If ntp was configured to use autokey, a remote attacker could send a crafted packet to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-1252).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
