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.

Yost Serial Connectors

Harlan makes one change to the above - he does a pigtail to tie DSR and DCD to the same wire, as some devices need this. While this may not be strictly necessary (and one person as said this is a potentially bad idea because the driver chip may "fight" the small voltage difference between DSR and DCD) Harlan has found that not doing this caused more problems than doing it, and the incremental cost of this pigtail is well-worth the little bit of extra effort.

The RJ-45/DB-x adapters are available from a variety of places. For example:
