  Robin Park and Dmitri Vinokurov discovered a flaw in the way ntpd handled
  certain malformed NTP packets. ntpd logged information about all such
  packets and replied with an NTP packet that was treated as malformed when
  received by another ntpd. A remote attacker could use this flaw to create
  an NTP packet reply loop between two ntpd servers via a malformed packet
  with a spoofed source IP address and port, causing ntpd on those servers to
  use excessive amounts of CPU time and fill disk space with log messages.
  (CVE-2009-3563)

  contains a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the
