Article ID: JSA11101 SECURITY_ADVISORIES Last Updated: 13 Jan 2021Version: 3.0
Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 15.1, 15.1X49, 17.3, 17.4, 18.1, 18.2, 18.3, 18.4, 19.1, 19.2, 19.3, 19.4, 20.1, 20.2, 20.3. This issue affects Junos OS Evolved 20.3.
Problem:

An improper check for unusual or exceptional conditions in Juniper Networks Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved Routing Protocol Daemon (RPD) service allows an attacker to send a valid BGP FlowSpec message thereby causing an unexpected change in the route advertisements within the BGP FlowSpec domain leading to disruptions in network traffic causing a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.

Continued receipt of these update messages will cause a sustained Denial of Service condition.
