suid scotty (ntping) overflow (fwd)

This has circulated on vuln-dev not sure if it made it here yet.  Vendor 
has been notified and released a fixed version 2.1.11.  

My exploit:
http://vapid.dhs.org/ntping_exp.c

There is a much better exploit out there, but I am not sure if I have
permission to distribute it.  So I will leave that to the author.

I am not sure that this made it on to the list the first time I sent
it... so sorry 
if this is a duplicate

[root () linux d0tslash]# /usr/bin/ntping `perl -e 'print "A" x 9000'`
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Hi folks,
here is the long promised posting of all suid/sgid files on a alpha of
SuSE
Linux 6.2 ... comments on wrong permissions are welcome.
Please note that SuSE has got 5 full CD-Roms so thats the reason for the
many many files ... (and too much suid/sgid ones ...)
...
