with another referenced time source. These packages include the ntpd
service which continuously adjusts system time and utilities used to query
and configure the ntpd service.

Security Fix(es):

* ntp: Authenticated DoS via Malicious Config Option (CVE-2017-6463)

* ntp: Denial of Service via Malformed Config (CVE-2017-6464)

* ntp: Buffer Overflow in DPTS Clock (CVE-2017-6462)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Red Hat would like to thank the NTP project for reporting these issues.
Upstream acknowledges Cure53 as the original reporter of these issues.
