Description Martin Prpič 2016-04-28 14:52:50 UTC
The following flaw was found in ntpd:

If ntpd was expressly configured to allow for remote configuration, a malicious user who knows the controlkey for ntpq or the requestkey for ntpdc (if mode7 is expressly enabled) can create a session with ntpd and if an existing association is unconfigured using the same IP twice on the unconfig directive line, ntpd will abort.
