Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Security fix for CVE-2017-6464 CVE-2017-6462 CVE-2017-6463 CVE-2017-6458 CVE-2017-6451 CVE-2017-6460 CVE-2016-9042.

----

This update improves the default configuration file to use the pool directive. It also replaces the ntpstat program with a shell script that uses the ntpq program instead of implementing the mode 6 protocol.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected ntp package.
