Uncontrolled Resource Consumption
A vulnerability in the Routing Protocols Daemon (RPD) with Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET) support can allow a network based unauthenticated attacker to cause a severe memory exhaustion condition on the device. This can have an adverse impact on the system performance and availability. This issue only affects devices with JET support running Junos OS 17.2R1 and subsequent releases. Other versions of Junos OS are unaffected by this vulnerability. Affected releases are Juniper Networks Junos OS: 17.2 versions prior to 17.2R1-S7, 17.2R2-S6, 17.2R3; 17.2X75 versions prior to 17.2X75-D102, 17.2X75-D110; 17.3 versions prior to 17.3R2-S4, 17.3R3; 17.4 versions prior to 17.4R1-S5, 17.4R2; 18.1 versions prior to 18.1R2-S3, 18.1R3;
CWE-400 - Uncontrolled resource consumption
An uncontrolled resource allocation attack (also known as resource exhaustion attack) triggers unauthorized overconsumption of the limited resources in an application, such as memory, file system storage, database connection pool entries, and CPU. This may lead to denial of service for valid users and degradation of the application's functionality as well as that of the host operating system.
