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



Article ID: JSA10859 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 11 Jul 2018Version: 2.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 15.1X8.
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"
      CAM destination filters: 0, CAM source filters: 0

Note: when the issue occurs, it does not show the applied firewall filter.

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>

This issue affects firewall filters for every address family.

15.1R4, 15.1R5, 15.1R6 and SRs based on these MRs.
