Juniper Junos SNMP MIB-II Subagent Daemon (mib2d) Unspecified Remote DoS (JSA10847)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 109213
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 an unspecified flaw in the SNMP MIB-II subagent daemon, mib2d, that allows a remote attacker to cause the daemon to crash, resulting in a denial of service for the SNMP subsystem. No further details have been provided.
Note: This issue only affects systems with SNMP mib2d enabled.
SNMP is disabled by default on devices running Junos OS.
