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.

The name you log in with

A login name is a sequence of alphanumeric characters and underscores.

You cannot alter your LoginName: you have to get the administrator to do this for you.

How to Find Yours

Look in TWikiUsers - if your name is followed by a dash and a word, usually lowercase, this is what you log in with.

e.g.

  • TWikiGuest - guest - 05 Sep 2004

Would mean that TWikiGuest would log in using the login name 'guest'

If, on the other hand, if your entry is like this:

  • TWikiGuest - 05 Sep 2004

Then you would log in using your WikiName, in this case 'TWikiGuest'
