Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 12.1X46, 12.3X48, 15.1X49. Affected platforms: SRX Series.
Problem:

On SRX Series devices, a crafted ICMP packet embedded within a NAT64 IPv6 to IPv4 tunnel may cause the flowd process to crash. Repeated crashes of the flowd process constitutes an extended denial of service condition for the SRX Series device. This issue only occurs if NAT64 is configured.

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