Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:156 (ntp).
When starting xntpd with the -u option and specifying the group by using a
string not a numeric gid the daemon uses the gid of the user not the group.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
