critical Nessus Plugin ID 109210
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 number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by an unspecified flaw that is triggered when handling Connectionless Network Protocol (CLNP) packets. This allows a remote attacker to crash a device or execute arbitrary code.

Note: This issue is only affected if 'clns-routing' or 'ESIS' is explicitly configured.


Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10844.
