2014-10 Security Bulletin: Junos: BGP UPDATE with crafted transitive attributes causes memory corruption and leads to RPD core (CVE-2014-3818)



Article ID: JSA10653 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 08 Oct 2014Version: 1.0
Product Affected:
This issue can affect any product or platform running Junos OS 9.1 and later releases with BGP configured and enabled.
A BGP UPDATE containing a specifically crafted set of transitive attributes can cause corruption of memory ultimately leading to an RPD routing process crash and restart. The crash was only achieved through in-house routing protocol fuzz testing. This issue only affects routers supporting 4-byte AS numbers, introduced starting with Junos OS 9.1. Additionally, the router is only vulnerable if the BGP peer does not support 4-byte AS numbers.

This issue was found during internal product security testing.

Juniper SIRT is not aware of any malicious exploitation of this vulnerability.

No other Juniper Networks products or platforms are affected by this issue.
