Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

CVE-2015-7691

The crypto_xmit function in ntpd in NTP 4.2.x before 4.2.8p4, and 4.3.x before 4.3.77 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via crafted packets containing particular autokey operations. NOTE: This vulnerability exists due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-9750.

CVE-2015-7692 The crypto_xmit function in ntpd in NTP 4.2.x before 4.2.8p4, and 4.3.x before 4.3.77 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash). NOTE: This vulnerability exists due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-9750.

CVE-2015-7702 The crypto_xmit function in ntpd in NTP 4.2.x before 4.2.8p4, and 4.3.x before 4.3.77 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash). NOTE: This vulnerability exists due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-9750.

Impact

An attacker may be able to craft a packet with particular autokey operations that upon receipt can cause ntpd to stop responding.
