Synopsis :

The remote router has a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the version of Junos
running on the remote host has a denial of service vulnerability.
When MPLS is enabled, receiving a high rate of Pseudo Wire (l2vpn or
l2circuit) control words from an adjacent node can cause the routing
engine (RE) to become overloaded. This could result in an RE
switchover, or a reboot in single RE environments.
