NTP users are strongly urged to take immediate action to ensure that their NTP daemons are not susceptible to being used in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Please also take this opportunity to defeat denial-of-service attacks by implementing Ingress and Egress filtering through BCP38.

ntp-4.2.8p15 was released on 23 June 2020. It addresses 1 medium-severity security issue in ntpd, and provides 13 non-security bugfixes over 4.2.8p13.

Please see the NTP Security Notice for vulnerability and mitigation details.

Discussion and Comments

Shubham, please note that some of the msyslog() items have (or had, depending on when I check something in) newlines at the end of the strings: "...\n" - the trailing \n is not wanted for syslog entries. But this means we will probably never want \n at the end of these strings as we can then add one if we are outputting to a TTY or FILE sink. It also means that if the current code has one directive for TTY or FILE output and the same directive for syslog, we should be able to replace this with a single call that says "output to both syslog and TTY/FILE ". There are also some cases (like libntp/audio.c) where we have plain printf() calls - these should be fixed, too.

trailing '\n' will be eliminated for syslog entry by chomping similar to perl.
