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-4.2.8p12 was released on 14 August 2018. It addresses 1 low-/medium-severity security issue in ntpd, 1 low-severity security issue in ntpq and ntpdc, and provides 27 non-security bugfixes and 4 other improvements over 4.2.8p11.

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

Are you using Autokey in production? If so, please contact Harlan - he's got some questions for you.

PPSAPI Header File Discussion

Where should it live?

As part of the NTP distribution, or as a stand-alone package?

  • If part of the distribution
    • We need maintainers
    • I'll make a bugzilla product category for it
    • we should have the option to install the header
    • we should be able to compare the package header with any installed header

  • If it is stand-alone
    • where should its home be?
      • ISC
      • sourceforge
      • ???
    • we need maintainers
