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


According to its self-reported version and model number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the jdhcpd daemon when handling invalid IPv6 UDP packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted IPv6 UDP packets, to consume available CPU resources, resulting in an interruption of the DHCP service.


Upgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper security advisory JSA10800.
