Juniper Junos RCE (JSA10871)

High Nessus Plugin ID 137004


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


According to the self reported version of Junos OS on the remote device it is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the routing protocol daemon (RPD). An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via crafted BGP NOTIFICATION messages, to crash the RPD process and potentially allow the execution of arbitrary commands.

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