Description

NTP before 4.2.8p7 and 4.3.x before 4.3.92 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (prevent subsequent authentication) by leveraging knowledge of the controlkey or requestkey and sending a crafted packet to ntpd, which changes the value of trustedkey, controlkey, or requestkey. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2016-2516 regression.
