Juniper Junos IPv6 sendd DoS (JSA10688)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85228


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 in sendd due to improper handling of IPv6 Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND) Protocol packets when the Secure Neighbor Discovery feature is configured. A remote attacker, using a crafted SEND packet, can exploit this to cause excessive consumption of CPU resources, resulting in an impact on CLI responsiveness and the processing of IPv6 packets via link-local addresses.


Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10688.
