Home CVE Database CVE-2015-7979



It was found that when NTP is configured in broadcast mode, an off-path attacker could broadcast packets with bad authentication (wrong key, mismatched key, incorrect MAC, etc) to all clients. The clients, upon receiving the malformed packets, would break the association with the broadcast server. This could cause the time on affected clients to become out of sync over a longer period of time.
