Juniper Junos OSPF Protocol Vulnerability (JSA10582)

high Nessus Plugin ID 69194
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device has a flaw in its OSPF implementation. A rogue router in the same autonomous system (AS) could exploit this to control the routing tables of all other routers in the AS.

Note that this issue does not affect device with one of the following configurations :

- Interfaces not configured for OSPF

- Passive OSPF interfaces

- OSPF configurations that use MD5 authentication

- OSPF interfaces that block external parties from sending OSPF link-state update packets


Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10582.
