New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording 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.
SolutionApply the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10961.
