CVE-2016-1548 / CVE-2016-1549 / CVE-2016-1550 / CVE-2016-2518 (ntp)

There is no information about these CVEs but Red Hat has published that ntp-4.2.6p5-40 has been pushed to stable repository.

The information is contained in the following link: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1332160

If it's fixed in RHEL and they have released it then it should also be fixed in CentOS.

Could you give me more information about the update?

Thanks.

CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

OK, I see. It's solved in Fedora.

How long could take to RedHat solving these issues and then CentOS incorporate to it?

Thanks at all.

That's a question for Redhat I'm afraid. No-one in the CentOS space knows what Redhat may or may not do until they've done it and published the fix. Since the highest severity there is 'moderate' I suspect that it's not right at the top of the pile in any case.
