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.
To upgrade an earlier TWiki version like 01 Sep 1999 to version 01 May 2000 you should do the following things:

  • Back up your system.
  • Update the templates in the /templates directory (and its subdirs):
    • Take the templates of the latest distribution as the base and merge your changes back into it.
  • Update the Perl scripts in the /bin directory:
    • Take the scripts of the latest distribution as the base and merge your changes back into it. Do so also for wikicfg.pm because it has important changes as well.
  • Update topics:
  • Add the PoweredByTWikiLogo to your NTP home page.
