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: 2.7
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 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.
SolutionApply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10688.
