HP-UX: CVE-2014-9296: Potential security vulnerabilities have been identified with HP-UX running NTP. These could be exploited remotely to execute code, create a Denial of Service (DoS), or other vulnerabilities.
The receive function in ntp_proto.c in ntpd in NTP before 4.2.8 continues to execute after detecting a certain authentication error, which might allow remote attackers to trigger an unintended association change via crafted packets.
With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
