Vulnerability Details CVE-ID: CVE-2014-9297 Description: Network Time Protocol (NTP) Project NTP daemon (ntpd) could allow a remote attacker to conduct spoofing attacks, caused by insufficient entropy in PRNG. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to spoof the IPv6 address ::1 to bypass ACLs and launch further attacks on the system. CVSS Base Score: 5.000 CVSS Temporal Score: http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/100004 for more information CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) CVE-ID: CVE-2014-9298 Description: Network Time Protocol (NTP) Project NTP daemon (ntpd) could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the improper validation of the length value in extension field pointers. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information. CVSS Base Score: 5.000 CVSS Temporal Score: http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/100005 for more information CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N) CVEID: CVE-2014-7817 Description: GNU C Library (glibc) could allow a local attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by an error in the wordexp() function. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands on the system. CVSS Base Score: 4.6 CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/98852 for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) CVE-ID: CVE-2014-9750 Description: NTP NTPd could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error in ntp_crypto.c when Autokey Authentication is enabled. By sending a malformed packet, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service. CVSS Base Score: 4.800 CVSS Temporal Score: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/109527 for more information CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:L) CVE-ID: CVE-2014-9751 Description: Network Time Protocol (NTP) could allow a remote attacker to conduct spoofing attacks, caused by the failure to properly determine whether a source IP address is an IPv6 loopback address by the read_network_packet function. By sending a specially crafted packet, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to spoof restricted packets.
