critical Nessus Plugin ID 102704
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


According to its self-reported version and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device has hardcoded credentials for the Integrated User Firewall (UserFW) services authentication API. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain administrative access to the device.


Upgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper security advisory JSA10791.
