The remote router has a denial of service vulnerability.
According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper
router has a denial of service vulnerability. In a Next Generation
MVPN scenario, a kernel memory buffer could get corrupted when the
router receives a bootstrap or auto-RP message larger than 204 bytes,
causing the kernel to crash every time a packet is received.
This issue only occurs in Next-Gen MVPN scenarios that use Ingress
Replication as the P-tunnel type and has Auto-RP or Bootstrap as the
group-to-RP mapping mechanism.
