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: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability when VPLS routing-instances are configured. An unauthenticated, adjacent attacker can exploit this, via Ethernet frames with the EtherType field of IPv6 (0x86DD), to cause a denial of service condition.
SolutionUpgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10750. Alternatively, if EtherType IPv6 MAC addresses are not required, configure a VPLS flood filter.
