Juniper Junos BGP-VPLS Advertisements RPD DoS (JSA10687)

High Nessus Plugin ID 85227

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


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 improper handling of BGP-VPLS advertisements with updated BGP local preference values. A remote attacker can exploit this to crash RDP with a NULL pointer deference exception.

Note that this issue only affects devices with internal BGP and VPLS enabled.
