Juniper JSA10879

high Nessus Plugin ID 126925
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

The version of the tested product installed on the remote host is prior to the fixed version in the advisory. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability that exists in RPD daemon. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, by continuously sending a specific Draft-Rosen MVPN control packet, to repeatedly crash the RPD process causing a prolonged denial of service as referenced in the JSA10879 advisory. Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Apply the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10879
