Description:

  Przemyslaw Frasunek has found a buffer overflow in the ntpd package
  (see http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/174011 for more details).
  The StackGuard protection in Immunix is effective at stopping this
  attack.  If the published exploit is run against the Immunix version,
  it will cause ntpd to exit with a StackGuard detection message but no
  penetration vulnerability is possible.  WireX is releasing updated
  packages to prevent the residual DoS attack.
