New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the snmpd daemon due to improper handling of SNMP packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted SNMP packet, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code..
SolutionUpgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper security advisory JSA10793. Alternatively, as a workaround, disable the SNMP service.
