Synopsis

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

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by multiple vulnerabilities in the J-Web component :

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists due to a failure to validate input before returning it to users.
A remote attacker, using a crafted request, can exploit this to gain access to session credentials or execute administrative actions through the user's browser.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in error handling that allows an attacker to crash the J-Web service.

Note that these issues only affects devices with J-Web enabled.

Solution

Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10682.
