2019-04 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: RPD process crashes due to specific BGP peer restarts condition. (CVE-2019-0028)

0

0

Article ID: JSA10932 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 10 Apr 2019Version: 1.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 16.1, 16.1X65, 16.2, 17.1, 17.2, 17.2X75, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1.
Problem:

On Junos devices with the BGP graceful restart helper mode enabled or the BGP graceful restart mechanism enabled, a BGP session restart on a remote peer that has the graceful restart mechanism enabled may cause the local routing protocol daemon (RPD) process to crash and restart. By simulating a specific BGP session restart, an attacker can repeatedly crash the RPD process causing prolonged denial of service (DoS).

Graceful restart helper mode for BGP is enabled by default.

No other Juniper Networks products or platforms are affected by this issue.

Affected releases are Juniper Networks Junos OS:

  • 16.1 versions prior to 16.1R7;
  • 16.1X65 versions prior to 16.1X65-D48;
  • 16.2 versions prior to 16.2R2-S8;
  • 17.1 versions prior to 17.1R2-S7, 17.1R3;
  • 17.2 versions prior to 17.2R1-S7, 17.2R3;

This issue has been assigned CVE-2019-0028.

Solution:

The following software releases have been updated to resolve this specific issue: 16.1R7, 16.1X65-D48, 16.2R2-S8, 17.1R2-S7, 17.1R3, 17.2R1-S7, 17.2R3, 17.2X75-D102, 17.2X75-D110, 17.2X75-D92, 17.3R2-S2, 17.3R3, 17.4R1-S4, 17.4R2, 18.1R2, 18.2R1, 18.2X75-D5, and all subsequent releases.

This issue is being tracked as PR 1325157 which is visible on the Customer Support website.

Note: Juniper SIRT's policy is not to evaluate releases which are beyond End of Engineering (EOE) or End of Life (EOL).

Workaround:

This issue can be prevented by disabling the BGP graceful restart mechanism, including graceful restart helper mode:

[protocols bgp graceful-restart disable]

Furthermore, the risk associated with this issue can be mitigated by limiting BGP sessions only from trusted peers.
