High Nessus Plugin ID 94678


The remote host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


According to its version, the remote Juniper E-eries device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the IPv6 support component due to improper handling IPv6 packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted IPv6 packet, to cause the line card to reset.

Note that devices with IPv6 disabled are not affected.
