2018-07 Security Bulletin: SRX Series: Vulnerabilities in ISC BIND named

  [JSA10875] Show Article Properties

Product Affected:
Junos OS 12.1X46, 12.3X48, 15.1X49, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1, 18.2 on SRX Series

Multiple vulnerabilities are addressed in the ISC BIND software included with Junos for SRX Series devices.

These issues only affects SRX devices where DNS proxy service has been configured under the [system services dns dns-proxy] stanza. This service is not enabled by default.

These issues do not affect other Junos OS based devices as they do not have BIND DNS server feature.

Juniper SIRT is not aware of any malicious exploitation of these issues.
