Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57245
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0393
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0393.

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time
with a reference time source.

The NTP daemon (ntpd), when run with the -u option and using a string to
specify the group, uses the group ID of the user instead of the group,
which causes ntpd to run with different privileges than intended.
(CVE-2005-2496)

The following issues have also been addressed in this update:
- - The init script had several problems
- - The script executed on upgrade could fail
- - The man page for ntpd indicated the wrong option for specifying a chroot
directory
- - The ntp daemon could crash with the message Exiting: No more memory!
- - There is a new option for syncing the hardware clock after a successful
run of ntpdate

Users of ntp should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these
issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
