Juniper Junos rpd RIP DoS (JSA10772)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 96661

Synopsis

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

Description

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 RIP advertisements. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, by sending a specially crafted RIP advertisement, to cause the rpd daemon to crash and restart.

Note that this vulnerability only affects devices that are configured with RIP enabled.

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

Solution

Apply the relevant Junos software release or workaround referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10772.
