Juniper ScreenOS 6.3.x < 6.3.0r21 Malformed SSL/TLS Packet DoS (JSA10732)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 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 that is 6.3.x
prior to 6.3.0r21. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service
vulnerability in the administrative web services that is triggered
when handling malformed SSL/TLS packets. An unauthenticated, remote
attacker can exploit this, via a crafted SSL packet, to cause the loss
of administrative access or to reboot the system.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied
only on the application's self-reported version number.
