3. Description:

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time
with another referenced time source. These packages include the ntpd
service which continuously adjusts system time and utilities used to query
and configure the ntpd service.

Security Fix(es):

* Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the NTP server's parsing of
configuration directives. A remote, authenticated attacker could cause ntpd
to crash by sending a crafted message. (CVE-2017-6463, CVE-2017-6464)

* A vulnerability was found in NTP, in the parsing of packets from the
/dev/datum device. A malicious device could send crafted messages, causing
ntpd to crash. (CVE-2017-6462)

Red Hat would like to thank the NTP project for reporting these issues.
Upstream acknowledges Cure53 as the original reporter of these issues.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

After installing this update, the ntpd daemon will restart automatically.

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1433987 - CVE-2017-6464 ntp: Denial of Service via Malformed Config
