Some news hit the wire recently about a dangerous NTP vuln:
http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Main/SecurityNotice#Buffer_overflow_in_ctl_putdata (site currently offline, possibly due to DoS)
Just wondering if pfSense is vulnerable to this? Do we need to patch or block something in response here? I read that BSD uses OpenNTPD which at first I had heard was impervious to this, but on https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/NTP_Server it states "The ntp.org NTPD distribution of ntpd is used" so now I am not sure. Any comments?
We're still investigating it internally.
