Juniper Junos MX and T4000 Series Trinity uBFD Packet DoS (JSA10701)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 86606


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


According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device is potentially affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to improper handling of uBFD packets that are received directly by chassis that have the 'Trio Chipset' (Trinity) MPC. A remote attacker can exploit this issue, via maliciously crafted uBFD packets, to crash the MPC line card.
