Article ID: JSA10936 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 24 Apr 2019Version: 3.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 12.1X46, 12.3X48, 15.1X49. Affected platforms: SRX5000 series.
Problem:

Receipt of a specific packet on the out-of-band management interface fxp0 may cause the system to crash and restart (vmcore).

By continuously sending a specially crafted packet to the fxp0 interface, an attacker can repetitively crash the system (vmcore) causing prolonged Denial of Service (DoS).

Affected releases are Juniper Networks SRX5000 Series:

  • 12.1X46 versions prior to 12.1X46-D82;
  • 12.3X48 versions prior to 12.3X48-D80;
