Poly Systems - Leap Second Impact

Vulnerability Summary

On June 30, 2015, a leap second will be inserted into the NTP system’s time servers. Some are concerned that the leap second might cause problems for Poly products.  


There is zero reason to suspect that the leap second will be a problem. All Poly products that use NTP use newer NTP software packages that know how to process a leap second. All products tested so far have proven to absorb the leap second properly. Finally, the last leap second inserted into the NTP system (on June 30, 2012) caused no problems for Poly products at all.
