Juniper Routers Security Flaw

6th January 2010.

Continuing the trend this week of worrying router security stories, a security defect in Juniper routers has been identified that allows a maliciously crafted TCP packet to potentially reboot the router. The flaw covers versions 3 to 10 of the JUNOS operating system. Newer versions of the OS (since January 2009) already have this fixed.

Uh oh

Juniper routers are normally used by larger networking organisations, e.g. ISPs and backbone providers. The sort of people who are likely to keep their router software fairly up to date, so hopefully there shouldn't be too much fall-out from this.

More on this is available from Praetorianprefect.
