2018-07 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: Stateless IP firewall filter rules stop working as expected after reboot or upgrade (CVE-2018-0026)

  [JSA10859] Show Article Properties


Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 15.1X8.
Problem:
After Junos OS device reboot or upgrade, the stateless firewall filter configuration may not take effect.

This issue can be verified by running the command:
  user@re0> show interfaces <interface_name> extensive | match filters"

The correct output should show the applied firewall filter, for example:
  user@re0> show interfaces <interface_name> extensive | match filters"
      CAM destination filters: 0, CAM source filters: 0
        Input Filters: FIREWAL_FILTER_NAME-<interface_name>
