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.

Discussion area for KnownOsIssues

It appears that OS-X uses the information in /private/etc/ntp.conf to populate /etc/ntp.conf. We need to have someone with an OS-X system to try making changes to see if this is true and to see if it's possible to specify configuration directives other than "server" (e.g. restrictions, crypto, etc.)
