0

0

Article ID: JSA11046 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 14 Oct 2020Version: 1.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 17.2X75, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1, 18.2, 18.2X75, 18.3, 18.4, 19.1, 19.2, 19.3, 19.4, 20.1.
Problem:

The Juniper Networks Junos OS kernel can create a core dump file when a process crashes that contains process state, for debugging. Due to incorrect initialization of a stack data structure, up to 20 bytes of kernel data previously stored on the stack will be exposed to a crashing user process, potentially disclosing sensitive kernel data.
