2018-07 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: Receipt of specially crafted UDP packets over MPLS may bypass stateless IP firewall rules (CVE-2018-0031)

Article ID: JSA10865 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 11 Jul 2018Version: 2.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 12.1X46, 12.3, 12.3X48, 14.1X53, 15.1, 15.1X49, 15.1X53, 16.1, 16.2, 17.1, 17.2, 17.2X75, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1, 18.2X75.
Problem:
Receipt of specially crafted UDP/IP packets over MPLS may be able to bypass a stateless firewall filter. The crafted UDP packets must be encapsulated and meet a very specific packet format to be classified in a way that bypasses IP firewall filter rules. The packets themselves do not cause a service interruption (e.g. RPD crash), but receipt of a high rate of UDP packets may be able to contribute to a denial of service attack.

This issue only affects processing of transit UDP/IP packets over MPLS, received on an interface with MPLS enabled. TCP packet processing and non-MPLS encapsulated UDP packet processing are unaffected by this issue.
