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


According to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in the J-Web service that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information and gain administrative privileges.
