Synopsis

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

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a session fixation vulnerability in J-Web. This allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to use social engineering techniques to fix and hijack a J-Web administrator's web session and potentially gain administrative access to the device.

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 JSA10961.
