The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper
Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the
network security daemon (nsd) due to a flaw that occurs when handling
DNS response messages for name resolution requests. An attacker can
exploit this, via a rogue DNS server designed to respond to the SRX
device with specially crafted DNS packets, to crash the nsd process,
resulting in a denial of service condition.
