Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 85894
ntpd init script ignores hosts containing 127.* anywhere in address
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
The ntpd init script contains a simple regex to avoid punching holes for
localhost in the firewall. It does this by deleting any line that contains
127.*. As you can probably see plainly once this is pointed out :) this is a bit
*too* simple -- a host like 126.96.36.199 would get deleted too. The expression
needs to be tightened to match only hosts that *begin* with 127.
I know, I know... fix didn't make it in the final version..
