  • The SNTP binary is included in BIG-IP 10.1.0 through 11.3.0, and Enterprise Manager 3.x; however, SNTP binary is not used by the BIG-IP and Enterprise Manager systems by default. In BIG-IP 11.4.0 and later, the SNTP binary is removed.

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

To mitigate this vulnerability, you can avoid launching the SNTP process manually.
