high Nessus Plugin ID 102700


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


According to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the routing protocol daemon (rpd) due to improper handling of BGP OPEN messages. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted BGP OPEN message, to repeatedly crash and restart the rpd daemon.
