VPR Score: 5.9


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.
