"From Red Hat Security Advisory 2018:0855 :

An update for ntp is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

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) :

* ntp: Authenticated DoS via Malicious Config Option (CVE-2017-6463)

* ntp: Denial of Service via Malformed Config (CVE-2017-6464)

* ntp: Buffer Overflow in DPTS Clock (CVE-2017-6462)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a
CVSS score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s)
listed in the References section.

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