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.

These don't work very well. They have two problems.

  1. First is that they have a lot of jitter/wander. (The jitter is too low frequency to easily filter out.)
  2. Second is that they have a strange off-by-a-second bug if there is a leap second pending. This graph shows both quirks.
