2019-10 Security Bulletin: Junos OS: A malformed IPv4 packet received by Junos in an NG-mVPN scenario may cause the routing protocol daemon (rpd) process to core (CVE-2019-0066)

  [JSA10965] Show Article Properties


Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 15.1X49, 15.1X53, 16.1, 16.2, 17.1, 17.2, 17.3.
Problem:
An unexpected status return value weakness in the Next-Generation Multicast VPN (NG-mVPN) service of Juniper Networks Junos OS allows attacker to cause a Denial of Service (DoS) condition and core the routing protocol daemon (rpd) process when a specific malformed IPv4 packet is received by the device running BGP.

This malformed packet can be crafted and sent to a victim device including when forwarded directly through a device receiving such a malformed packet, but not if the malformed packet is first de-encapsulated from an encapsulated format by a receiving device.

Continued receipt of the malformed packet will result in a sustained Denial of Service condition.
