CVE-2015-5300

Status Candidate

Overview

The panic_gate check in NTP before 4.2.8p5 is only re-enabled after the first change to the system clock that was greater than 128 milliseconds by default, which allows remote attackers to set NTP to an arbitrary time when started with the -g option, or to alter the time by up to 900 seconds otherwise by responding to an unspecified number of requests from trusted sources, and leveraging a resulting denial of service (abort and restart).

FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-16:02.ntp
Posted Jan 15, 2016
Authored by Network Time Foundation

FreeBSD Security Advisory - The ntpd(8) daemon has a safety feature to prevent excessive stepping of the clock called the "panic threshold". If ever ntpd(8) determines the system clock is incorrect by more than this threshold, the daemon exits. There is an implementation error within the ntpd(8) implementation of this feature, which allows the system time be adjusted in certain circumstances. When ntpd(8) is started with the '-g' option specified, the system time will be corrected regardless of if the time offset exceeds the panic threshold (by default, 1000 seconds). The FreeBSD rc(8) subsystem allows specifying the '-g' option by either including '-g' in the ntpd_flags list or by enabling ntpd_sync_on_start in the system rc.conf(5) file. If at the moment ntpd(8) is restarted, an attacker can immediately respond to enough requests from enough sources trusted by the target, which is difficult and not common, there is a window of opportunity where the attacker can cause ntpd(8) to set the time to an arbitrary value.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2783-1
Posted Oct 27, 2015
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2783-1 - Aleksis Kauppinen discovered that NTP incorrectly handled certain remote config packets. In a non-default configuration, a remote authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to cause NTP to crash, resulting in a denial of service. Miroslav Lichvar discovered that NTP incorrectly handled logconfig directives. In a non-default configuration, a remote authenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to cause NTP to crash, resulting in a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1930-01
Posted Oct 27, 2015
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1930-01 - The Network Time Protocol is used to synchronize a computer's time with a referenced time source. It was discovered that ntpd as a client did not correctly check timestamps in Kiss-of-Death packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a crafted Kiss-of-Death packet to an ntpd client that would increase the client's polling interval value, and effectively disable synchronization with the server. It was found that ntpd did not correctly implement the threshold limitation for the '-g' option, which is used to set the time without any restrictions. A man-in-the-middle attacker able to intercept NTP traffic between a connecting client and an NTP server could use this flaw to force that client to make multiple steps larger than the panic threshold, effectively changing the time to an arbitrary value.
