An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.


The network timeservice ntp was updated to fix critical security issues
(bnc#910764, CERT VU#852879)
* A potential remote code execution problem was found inside ntpd. The
functions crypto_recv() (when using autokey authentication),
ctl_putdata(), and configure() where updated to avoid buffer overflows
that could be exploited. (CVE-2014-9295)

missing a return statement. This could also lead to a potentially attack
vector. (CVE-2014-9296)
