    and a buffer overflow in the handling of 'ntpdc reslist'
    commands may result in denial of service.

  - CVE-2015-7979
    Aanchal Malhotra discovered that if NTP is configured
    for broadcast mode, an attacker can send malformed
    authentication packets which break associations with the
    server for other broadcast clients.

  - CVE-2015-8138
    Matthew van Gundy and Jonathan Gardner discovered that
    missing validation of origin timestamps in ntpd clients
    may result in denial of service.

  - CVE-2015-8158
    Jonathan Gardner discovered that missing input
    sanitising in ntpq may result in denial of service.

  - CVE-2016-1547
    Stephen Gray and Matthew van Gundy discovered that
    incorrect handling of crypto NAK packets may result in
    denial of service.

  - CVE-2016-1548
    Jonathan Gardner and Miroslav Lichvar discovered that
    ntpd clients could be forced to change from basic
    client/server mode to interleaved symmetric mode,
    preventing time synchronisation.

  - CVE-2016-1550
    Matthew van Gundy, Stephen Gray and Loganaden Velvindron
    discovered that timing leaks in the packet
    authentication code could result in recovery of a
    message digest.
