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.

Virtual Build Box

Related Topics: AutomatedBuildFramework, Vm1DeploymentPlan


  • A "library" of startable VMs, in a number of versions of a number of different OSes.
  • If these are also loadable/runnable on psp-at1 (an Atom box) that would be great.
  • When a commit happens on a suitable repo, we'd like something to start spinning up VMs on vm1, have each VM check out (or otherwise access) the repo we want built, do the build, upload the "status" of the build, then tear down the VM.

Current Hardware

The motherboard is a Supermicro X8DTU, which has the Intel 82576 dual-gigE chip (which should be PTP-capable).

  • Xeon X5650, 2.67GHz, 2 packages x 6 cores x 2 SMT threads (24 CPUs)
  • 24G memory
  • ada0 160GB Intel SSD
  • ada1 2T Hitachi
  • ada2 2T Hitachi

The two Hitachi drives are mirrored as a single /data volume, running FreeBSD-9

Buildbot software

One approach to the implementation is to use https://buildbot.net for the core functionality. Harlan is prepared to work on the BK support.

He has done a buildbot checkout at vm1:~stenn/buildbot-work/ .
