is it possible to include in base system of the upcoming 10.0 the new
version of ntp (4.2.7 instead of 4.2.4)?

There is a bug in older versions (< 4.2.7) who allows attacker use an ntp
server to DDoS. This has been corrected in new version:

This attack seems to be increasing in the last few weeks.

net/ntp-devel is Ok.

Thank you, sorry for my basic english.
