Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
Package name: timed
Date: March 22nd, 2001
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2001:034
Affected versions: 6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1
The time server daemon, timed, tries to synchronize the local
host time with the time of other machines on a local area network.
A bug in timed, as reported by the FreeBSD Security Officer, that
could be triggered remotely can crash the time server daemon.
Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the
integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the
rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.
Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/"
directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM
package for Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/".
Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not
need to download them.
Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours
to update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of
the two above-listed mirrors.
