Hi Harlan,

You are most welcome.

I apologise that I didn’t realise earlier that the codebase was shared with ntp and therefore also affected you guys. 

I do not have any other security issues in the pipeline that involve you guys.

The guys at NTPsec approached me back in 2016 when I found the first remote unauthenticated DoS in ntp. I didn’t have time back then to help them out, but I did half a year ago when I found the that were just disclosed at https://dumpco.re/blog/ntpsec-bugs <https://dumpco.re/blog/ntpsec-bugs>
