Juniper Junos IPv6 sendd DoS (JSA10688)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper
Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in sendd
due to improper handling of IPv6 Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND)
Protocol packets when the Secure Neighbor Discovery feature is
configured. A remote attacker, using a crafted SEND packet, can
exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources,
resulting in an impact on CLI responsiveness and the processing of
IPv6 packets via link-local addresses.
