<p>NTP is a protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over a
network. The net-misc/ntp package contains the official reference
implementation by the NTP Project.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in NTP. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
<impact type="high">

with the privileges of the process, cause a Denial of Service condition,
and obtain sensitive information that could assist in other attacks.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All NTP users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
