0

Article ID: JSA10926 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 10 Apr 2019Version: 1.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 15.1X49, 15.1X53, 16.1, 16.2, 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1, 18.2, 18.2X75, 18.3.
Problem:

In a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol version 6 (DHCPv6) environment, the jdhcpd daemon may crash and restart upon receipt of certain DHCPv6 solicit messages received from a DHCPv6 client. By continuously sending the same crafted packet, an attacker can repeatedly crash the jdhcpd process causing a sustained Denial of Service (DoS) to both IPv4 and IPv6 clients.
