Juniper ScreenOS 6.3 < 6.3.0r17 IPv6 Packet DoS
High Nessus Plugin ID 76280
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Juniper ScreenOS 6.3 prior to 6.3.0r17. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
A denial of service flaw exists when handling a specially crafted IPv6 packet sequence. This could allow a remote attacker to cause the device to crash or reboot, and repeated exploitation can result in an extended denial of service condition.
SolutionUpgrade to 6.3.0r17 or later.
