Synopsis

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

Description

According 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.

Solution

Upgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper security advisory JSA10847. Alternatively, as a workaround, disable the SNMP service.
