Juniper Junos Denial of Service (DoS) JSA11030

Low Nessus Plugin ID 138605


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 Denial of Service (DoS) vulnerability. By continuously executing the same CLI commands 'show ospf interface extensive' or 'show ospf interface detail' CLI commands, a local attacker can repeatedly crash the RPD process causing a sustained Denial of Service.

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