Description

ntpd in NTP before 4.2.8p7 and 4.3.x before 4.3.92 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (ntpd abort) by a large request data value, which triggers the ctl_getitem function to return a NULL value.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-ntp

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.
