high Nessus Plugin ID 78420
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 Junos device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the implementation of OpenSSL :

- An error exists related to 'ec point format extension' handling and multithreaded clients that allows freed memory to be overwritten during a resumed session.

- An error exists related to handling fragmented 'ClientHello' messages that allows a man-in-the-middle attacker to force usage of TLS 1.0 regardless of higher protocol levels being supported by both the server and the client. (CVE-2014-3511)

- A buffer overflow error exists related to handling Secure Remote Password protocol (SRP) parameters having unspecified impact. (CVE-2014-3512)

- A NULL pointer dereference error exists related to handling Secure Remote Password protocol (SRP) that allows a malicious server to crash a client, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-5139)

Note that these issues only affects devices with J-Web or the SSL service for JUNOScript enabled.
