CAN-2005-2496 improper group set when running ntpd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
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.
# rcxntpd start
# ps -C ntpd -o comm,pid,ruser,euser,rgroup,egroup
verify given and real IDs

Fix for this issue.
has this been fixed now?
Fixed (by firstname.lastname@example.org) on Thu Apr 14 2005
with help (email@example.com) in:
devel, FC-4, FC-3, RHEL-4.
RHEL-3 does not call 'getgrnam()'.
I checked only (int sw_gid - initialization/setting):
An update for FC3 was released so ERRATA is the proper resolution here as this
bug is filed for FC3.
