Medium Nessus Plugin ID 125546
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionThe version of tested product installed on the remote host is 12.3 prior to 12.3R12-S12, 12.3X48 prior to 12.3X48-D76, 14.1X53 prior to 14.1X53-D48, 15.1 prior to 15.1R5, 15.1X49 prior to 15.1X49-D151, 15.1 prior to 15.1F6-S12 or 16.1 prior to 16.1R2. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, via a crafted XML data input, to cause the system to stop responding and potentially with other possible unspecified impacts as referenced in the JSA10904 advisory. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionApply the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10904
