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.

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

Bugzilla Blocking Release Flags

We use flags in our bugzilla to assist in the Release process.

Anybody may request that a bug block a release. ? is the flag value that indicates a request.

The Release Engineer is (currently) the only person who may grant (+) or deny (-) a release blocking flag.

Before a release is made the Release Engineer makes sure there are no pending blocking bugs.

The Release Engineer knows that a developer has a fix ready to be incorporated into the codebase because the fix will be in a properly marked repository on pogo.udel.edu and bug will be marked as READY.
