2022-01 Security Bulletin: Junos Fusion: A Satellite Device can be controlled by rewiring it to a foreign AD causing a DoS (CVE-2022-22154)

Article ID  : JSA11262
Last Updated: 12 Jan 2022
Version     : 1.0

Product Affected:
This issue affects Junos OS 18.4, 19.1, 19.2.

In a Junos Fusion scenario an External Control of Critical State Data
vulnerability in the Satellite Device (SD) control state machine of Juniper
Networks Junos OS allows an attacker who is able to make physical changes to
the cabling of the device to cause a denial of service (DoS).

An SD can get rebooted and subsequently controlled by an Aggregation Device
(AD) which does not belong to the original Fusion setup and is just connected
to an extended port of the SD. To carry out this attack the attacker needs to
have physical access to the cabling between the SD and the original AD.

This issue affects Juniper Networks Junos OS:

  o 16.1R1 and later versions prior to 18.4R3-S10;
  o 19.1 versions prior to 19.1R3-S7;
  o 19.2 versions prior to 19.2R3-S4.

This issue does not affect Juniper Networks Junos OS versions prior to 16.1R1.
