Juniper ScreenOS 6.3 < 6.3.0r17 DoS

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Juniper ScreenOS 6.3 prior to
6.3.0r17. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service
vulnerability due to a failure to properly handle SSL/TLS protocol

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could potentially exploit this
vulnerability by sending malformed SSL/TLS packets to cause a firewall
crash or failover. Repeated exploitation can result in an extended
denial of service condition.
