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

Shubham, please note that some of the
items have (or had, depending on when I check something in) newlines at the end of the strings:
- the trailing \n is not wanted for syslog entries. But this means we will probably never
want \n at the end of these strings as we can then add one if we are outputting to a
sink. It also means that if the current code has one directive for
output and the same directive for
, we should be able to replace this with a single call that says "output to both
". There are also some cases (like libntp/audio.c) where we have plain
calls - these should be fixed, too.
trailing '\n' will be eliminated for syslog entry by chomping similar to perl.
