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.

Are you using Autokey in production? If so, please contact Harlan - he's got some questions for you.
We want to release NTP version 4.2.8 soon. The following areas could use some help:
Review the documentation in the html/ folder and let us know about anything that needs to be corrected
Check out the "blocking 4.2.8" bug list at ReleaseSchedule
The blocking bugs mostly fall into two categories, documentation and network issues.
We could also use more eyes and feedback on the issues raised at NoserveAndProtocolResponseMatrix
