VPR Score: 3.4


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


According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability when processing fragmented OSPFv3 packets with an IPsec Authentication Header (AH). A remote attacker on an adjacent network can exploit this issue to crash the kernel, resulting in the Routing Engine (RE) restarting.
