critical Nessus Plugin ID 107258
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote NTP server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of the remote NTP server is 4.x prior to 4.2.8p11. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, which allow denial of service attacks, information disclosure and possibly, remote code execution.

Solution
