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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Junos OS installed on the remote host is prior to 12.3R12-S14, 12.3X48-D80, 15.1F6-S13, 15.1X49-D170, 15.1X53-D497, 16.1R4-S13, 16.2R2-S10, 17.1R3, 17.2R2-S7, 17.3R3-S5, 17.4R1-S7, or 18.1R3-S5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the JSA10948 advisory:
- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in Embedthis GoAhead before 4.0.1 and Appweb before 7.0.2 due to An HTTP POST request with a specially crafted 'Host' header field may cause a NULL pointer dereference and thus cause a denial of service as demonstrated by the lack of a trailing ']' character in an IPv6 address. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to conduct a denial of service attack on an arbitrary remote host. (CVE-2018-15505)
- A denial of service (DoS) vulnerability exists in Embedthis GoAhead before 4.0.1 and Appweb before 7.0.2 due to An HTTP POST request with a specially crafted 'Host' header field may cause a NULL pointer dereference and thus cause a denial of service as demonstrated by If-Modified-Since or If-Unmodified-Since with a month greater than 11. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to conduct a denial of service attack on an arbitrary remote host. (CVE-2018-15504)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Disable J-Web, limit access to only trusted hosts or apply the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10948
