2018-10 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: authd allows assignment of IP address requested by DHCP subscriber logging in with Option 50 (Requested IP Address) (CVE-2018-0057)

  [JSA10892] Show Article Properties


Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 16.1, 16.2, 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1.
Problem:

On MX Series and M120/M320 platforms configured in a Broadband Edge (BBE) environment, subscribers logging in with DHCP Option 50 to request a specific IP address will be assigned the requested IP address, even if there is a static MAC to IP address binding in the access profile. In the problem scenario, with a hardware-address and IP address configured under address-assignment pool, if a subscriber logging in with DHCP Option 50, the subscriber will not be assigned an available address from the matched pool, but will still get the requested IP address.

A malicious DHCP subscriber may be able to utilize this vulnerability to create duplicate IP address assignments, leading to a denial of service for valid subscribers or unauthorized information disclosure via IP address assignment spoofing.
