Description

NTP before 4.2.8p9 changes the peer structure to the interface it receives the response from a source, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (prevent communication with a source) by sending a response for a source to an interface the source does not use.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ntp
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ntp-doc
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ntp-perl
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-ntpdate
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-sntp
