    I was wondering if this was on the radar? Appears to be very critical to patch asap.

    The most recent issues with NTP should be addressed by the OS vendor. Assuming you have a CentOS system and tun regular upcp and/or yum updates I would hope that this should be addressed by CentOS at some point in the near future. cPanel (to my knowledge) does not provide the NTP package.

    That is correct. CentOS/Red Hat provides the ntp package. We (cPanel) do not distribute our own ntp package.
