Junos OS: RPD crash upon receipt of malformed PIM packet (JSA10913)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 121354


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 a denial of service vulnerability. The routing protocol daemon (RPD) process will crash and restart when a specific invalid IPv4 PIM Join packet is received. While RPD restarts after a crash, repeated crashes can result in an extended denial of service (DoS) condition.
