  [JSA10953] Show Article Properties


Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 12.3X48, 15.1X49, 17.3, 17.4. Affected platforms: SRX Series.
Problem:
A vulnerability in the SIP ALG packet processing service of Juniper Networks Junos OS allows an attacker to cause a Denial of Service (DoS) to the device by sending specific types of valid SIP traffic to the device. In this case, the flowd process crashes and generates a core dump while processing SIP ALG traffic.

Continued receipt of these valid SIP packets will result in a sustained Denial of Service (DoS) condition.

17.3 versions prior to 17.3R3 on SRX Series;

17.4 versions prior to 17.4R2 on SRX Series.

This issue only affects SRX Series devices where SIP ALG is enabled.

The following minimum configuration is required:
