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.

NTP.Servers Web Preferences

The following settings are web preferences of the NTP.Servers web. These preferences overwrite the site-level preferences in TWikiPreferences, and can be overwritten by user preferences (your personal topic, i.e. TWikiGuest in the NTP.Users web)

Preferences:

  • List of topics of the NTP.Servers web:

  • Web specific background color: (Pick a lighter one of the StandardColors)
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #D0D0D0

  • Edit Banner
    • Set EDITBANNER =

Vertical size of text edit box: (can be overwritten by user preferences)

  • Set EDITBOXHEIGHT = 10

  • List this web in the SiteMap:
    • If yes, set SITEMAPLIST to on, do not set NOSEARCHALL, and add the "what" and "use to..." description for the site map. Make sure to list only links that include the name of the web, e.g. Servers.Topic links.
    • Set SITEMAPLIST = on
    • Set SITEMAPWHAT = NTP Time Servers List
    • Set SITEMAPUSETO = ...maintain the NTP Time Servers List

  • Exclude web from a web="all" search: (Set to on for hidden webs)
    • Set NOSEARCHALL =

  • Users or groups who are not / are allowed to view / change / rename topics in the Servers web: (See TWikiAccessControl)
    • Set DENYWEBVIEW =
    • Set ALLOWWEBVIEW =
    • Set DENYWEBCHANGE = TWikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBCHANGE =
    • Set DENYWEBRENAME = TWikiGuest
    • Set ALLOWWEBRENAME =

  • Web preferences that are not allowed to be overridden by user preferences:
    • Set FINALPREFERENCES = WEBTOPICLIST, DENYWEBVIEW, ALLOWWEBVIEW, DENYWEBCHANGE, ALLOWWEBCHANGE, DENYWEBRENAME, ALLOWWEBRENAME

Notes:

  • A preference is defined as:
    6 spaces * Set NAME = value
    Example:
    • Set WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
  • Preferences are used as TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
    • When you write variable %WEBBGCOLOR% , it gets expanded to #D0D0D0 .
  • The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences first, i.e. set WEBCOPYRIGHT before WIKIWEBMASTER since %WEBCOPYRIGHT% uses the %WIKIWEBMASTER% variable.
  • You can introduce new preferences variables and use them in your topics and templates. There is no need to change the NTP engine (Perl scripts).
