Juniper Junos SNMP MIB-II Subagent Daemon (mib2d) Unspecified Remote DoS (JSA10847)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 109213
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.

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.
