"Updated ntp packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.

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

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's
time with a referenced time source.

It was discovered that ntpd as a client did not correctly check the
originate timestamp in received packets. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to send a crafted packet to an ntpd client that would
effectively disable synchronization with the server, or push arbitrary
offset/delay measurements to modify the time on the client.
(CVE-2015-8138)

All ntp users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the
update, the ntpd daemon will restart automatically."
