2019-01 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: SRX Series: Crafted HTTP traffic may cause UTM to consume all mbufs, leading to Denial of Service (CVE-2019-0010)

Article ID: JSA10910 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 14 Jan 2019Version: 3.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 12.1X46, 12.3X48, 15.1X49. Affected platforms: SRX Series.
Problem:

An SRX Series Service Gateway configured for Unified Threat Management (UTM) may experience a denial of service due to the receipt of crafted HTTP traffic. Each crafted HTTP packet inspected by UTM consumes mbufs which can be identified through the following log messages:

all_logs.0:Jun 8 03:25:03 srx1 node0.fpc4 : SPU3 jmpi mbuf stall 50%.
all_logs.0:Jun 8 03:25:13 srx1 node0.fpc4 : SPU3 jmpi mbuf stall 51%.
all_logs.0:Jun 8 03:25:24 srx1 node0.fpc4 : SPU3 jmpi mbuf stall 52%.
...

Eventually the system runs out of mbufs and either triggers a failover in a high-availability (HA) clustered environment, or causes traffic forwarding to stop on a standalone device.

This issue only occurs when HTTP AV inspection is configured. Devices configured for Web Filtering alone are unaffected by this issue.

Affected releases are Junos OS on SRX Series:

  • 12.1X46 versions prior to 12.1X46-D81;
  • 12.3X48 versions prior to 12.3X48-D77;
  • 15.1X49 versions prior to 15.1X49-D101, 15.1X49-D110.

This issue might occur when UTM policy is configured and applied to the security policy that inspect HTTP traffic :

[security utm feature-profile anti-virus]

in combination with:

[security policies from-zone to-zone … then permit application-services utm-policy <policy-name>]

Juniper SIRT is not aware of any malicious exploitation of this vulnerability.
