  [JSA10938] Show Article Properties


Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 16.1, 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1, 18.2 on EX4300 Series.
Problem:

A vulnerability in the pfe-chassisd Chassis Manager (CMLC) daemon of Juniper Networks Junos OS allows an attacker to cause a Denial of Service (DoS) to the EX4300 when specific valid broadcast packets create a broadcast storm condition when received on the me0 interface of the EX4300 Series device. A reboot of the device is required to restore service. Continued receipt of these valid broadcast packets will create a sustained Denial of Service (DoS) against the device.

Affected releases are Juniper Networks Junos OS:

  • 16.1 versions above and including 16.1R1 prior to 16.1R7-S5;
  • 17.1 versions prior to 17.1R3;
  • 17.2 versions prior to 17.2R3;
  • 17.3 versions prior to 17.3R3-S2;
  • 17.4 versions prior to 17.4R2;
  • 18.1 versions prior to 18.1R3;
  • 18.2 versions prior to 18.2R2.
