Right. It is important for others to conduct their own tests to verify
the patch is correct. They should not be restrained to only test what I
tested. In fact, it's better if they come up with their own testing.
Dave didn't say whether or not the patch fixed the problem with the
patch he made to cause the attack. I can only say what I did to test the
patch which basically involved making changes to ntpdc to force
bad/invalid packets.
