1. Summary:

An update for ntp is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7
Extended Update Support.

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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node EUS (v. 6.7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional EUS (v. 6.7) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.7) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 6.7) - i386, noarch, ppc64, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

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):

* It was found that when NTP was configured in broadcast mode, a remote
attacker could broadcast packets with bad authentication to all clients.
The clients, upon receiving the malformed packets, would break the
association with the broadcast server, causing them to become out of sync
over a longer period of time. (CVE-2015-7979)

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way NTP handled preemptable
client associations. A remote attacker could send several crypto NAK
packets to a victim client, each with a spoofed source address of an
existing associated peer, preventing that client from synchronizing its
time. (CVE-2016-1547)

* It was found that an ntpd client could be forced to change from basic
client/server mode to the interleaved symmetric mode. A remote attacker
could use a spoofed packet that, when processed by an ntpd client, would
cause that client to reject all future legitimate server responses,
effectively disabling time synchronization on that client. (CVE-2016-1548)

* A flaw was found in the way NTP's libntp performed message
authentication. An attacker able to observe the timing of the comparison
function used in packet authentication could potentially use this flaw to
recover the message digest. (CVE-2016-1550)

* An out-of-bounds access flaw was found in the way ntpd processed certain
packets. An authenticated attacker could use a crafted packet to create a
peer association with hmode of 7 and larger, which could potentially
(although highly unlikely) cause ntpd to crash. (CVE-2016-2518)

The CVE-2016-1548 issue was discovered by Miroslav Lichvar (Red Hat).

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

After installing this update, the ntpd daemon will restart automatically.
