Article ID: JSA11003 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 08 Apr 2020Version: 1.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS Evolved.
Problem:

Multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities in Juniper Networks Junos OS Evolved allow a local, authenticated user with shell access the ability to view sensitive configuration information, such as the hashed values of login passwords and shared secrets. The information provided is similar to the output from 'show config system login', which is typically restricted to the super-user class. The log files are readable by any authenticated user with shell access.
 

One or more of these issues affect all versions of Junos OS Evolved prior to 19.3R1.
 

Juniper SIRT is not aware of any malicious exploitation of this vulnerability.
 

This issue was found during internal product security testing or research.
 

The issues addressed in this advisory include:
