Description

Vulnerability Recommended Actions

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, ensure that established peer connections are trusted and avoid running instances of ntpq in interactive mode. In addition, running ntpq in interactive mode with raw mode enabled does not expose this issue. Raw mode can be enabled within ntpq interactive mode by using the raw keyword.
