New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.4
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the network security daemon (nsd) due to a flaw that occurs when handling DNS response messages for name resolution requests. An attacker can exploit this, via a rogue DNS server designed to respond to the SRX device with specially crafted DNS packets, to crash the nsd process, resulting in a denial of service condition.
