Notice: Update on Galleon Devices and the GPSd Code bug.
Posted by Neil Barnes on 19 October 2021 14:09
Galleon is aware of an issue relating to certain versions of GPSd software used on some NTP servers on the market.
For affected devices, a bug in the GPSd software will subtract 1024 from the week number resulting in the date being reset to March 2002!
The nature of the bug means that this effect will take place on 23rd October 2021.
We can confirm that Galleon products are not affected by the bug in GPSd as Galleon use a custom script gpsclckd and do not use GPSd within their code.
This extends across popular products like the NTS-4000 and NTS-6002 timeserver ranges.
