Juniper Junos OS DoS (JSA69873)

high Nessus Plugin ID 166604


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


The version of Junos OS installed on the remote host is affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability. On QFX10000 Series devices using Juniper Networks Junos OS when configured as transit IP/MPLS penultimate hop popping (PHP) nodes with link aggregation group (LAG) interfaces, an Improper Validation of Specified Index, Position, or Offset in Input weakness allows an attacker sending certain IP packets to cause multiple interfaces in the LAG to detach causing a Denial of Service (DoS) condition as referenced in theJSA69873 advisory.

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