Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 7
Component/s: Userspace


A flaw was found in the way NTP handled rate limiting. An attacker able to send a large number of crafted requests to an NTP server could trigger the rate limiting on that server, and prevent clients from getting a usable reply from the server.

The default NTP configuration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux does not enable rate limiting.
