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 Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to improperly processing a malformed BGP Flow Specification (FlowSpec) prefix. A remote attacker can exploit this issue to crash the routing process daemon (rpd).

Note that this issue only affects devices with BGP FlowSpec enabled.


Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10670.
