Juniper Junos SRX Series flowd DoS (JSA10622)

High Nessus Plugin ID 73496


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.


Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10622.
