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.

VPR Score: 3.4


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


According to its self-reported version number, the remote Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to improper processing by the Enhanced Web Filtering (EWF). An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted URL to crash the flow daemon (flowd) process. Repeated crashes of flowd can result in a sustained denial of service condition for the device.

Note that this issue only affects SRX series devices with EWF enabled.
