Well, while this is a reaching link…

Server 1 and Server 2 have different times and some vital program becomes
open to tampering when not synced.

(Computer that controls clock-ins says that Person A clocked in an hour
before they did. Clocks get corrected and the user gets an extra hour of
work they didn't do on their paychecks... A DoS if Person A times this
correctly.)

Sorry, I suck at examples. *gets ready to delete his own email when(if) it
arrives*
