rPath Issue Tracking System:
In previous versions of NTP, it is possible for remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by using
MODE_PRIVATE to send a spoofed request or response packet that
triggers a continuous exchange of MODE_PRIVATE error responses
between two NTP daemons. This has been fixed.
