Juniper Junos rpd BGP add-path DoS (JSA10771)

high Nessus Plugin ID 96660


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


According to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a denial of service vulnerability in the routing process daemon (rpd) due to improper handling of BGP packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, by sending specially crafted BGP packets, to cause the rdp daemon to crash and restart.

Note that this vulnerability only affects devices configured with the BGP add-path feature enabled with the 'send' option or with both the 'send' and 'receive' options.

Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the device's self-reported version and current configuration.
