Description

It was discovered that ntpq and ntpdc disclosed the origin timestamp to unauthenticated clients, which could permit such clients to forge the server

"It was discovered that ntpq and ntpdc disclosed the origin timestamp
to unauthenticated clients, which could permit such clients to forge
the server's replies. (CVE-2015-8139)

The process_packet function in ntp_proto.c in ntpd in NTP 4.x before
4.2.8p8 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(peer-variable modification) by sending spoofed packets from many
source IP addresses in a certain scenario, as demonstrated by
triggering an incorrect leap indication. (CVE-2016-4954)

ntpd in NTP 4.x before 4.2.8p8, when autokey is enabled, allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (peer-variable clearing and
association outage) by sending (1) a spoofed crypto-NAK packet or (2)
a packet with an incorrect MAC value at a certain time.
(CVE-2016-4955)

ntpd in NTP 4.x before 4.2.8p8 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (interleaved-mode transition and time change) via a
spoofed broadcast packet. This vulnerability exists because of an
incomplete fix for CVE-2016-1548 . (CVE-2016-4956)"
