The host is installed with ntp on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6 or 7 and is prone to a denial of service vulnerability. A flaw is present in the application, which fails to properly handle a mode 6 or mode 7 packet containing an unusually long data. Successful exploitation could allow attackers to crash ntpd.
