  <affected>
    <package name="sys-apps/busybox" auto="yes" arch="*">

    <p>BusyBox is a set of tools for embedded systems and is a replacement for
      GNU Coreutils.
    </p>

  <description>
    <p>The recv_and_process_client_pkt function in networking/ntpd.c in BusyBox
      allows remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service (CPU and bandwidth
      consumption) via a forged NTP packet, which triggers a communication
      loop.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A remote attacker might send a specially crafted package to a machine
      running BusyBox ntpd, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service
      condition.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All BusyBox users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=sys-apps/busybox-1.25.1"
    </code>
