Medium Nessus Plugin ID 94579

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


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


According to its self-reported version number and architecture, the remote Juniper Junos vMX (Virtual MX Series) router is 14.1 prior to 14.1R8 or 15.1 prior to 15.1F5. It is, therefore, affected by a local information disclosure vulnerability due to the use of incorrect permissions. A local attacker can exploit this to disclose sensitive information in vMX or vPFE images, including private cryptographic keys.


Upgrade to Juniper Junos vMX 14.1R8 / 15.1F5 as referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10766.
