Article ID: JSA69875
Product Affected: This issue affects Junos OS 19.2, 20.2, 20.3, 20.4, 21.1,
21.2, 21.3. This issue affects all versions of Junos OS Evolved.
Severity Level: Medium
CVSS Score: 5.9 (CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)
A Time-of-check Time-of-use (TOCTOU) Race Condition vulnerability in the
Routing Protocol Daemon (rpd) of Juniper Networks Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved
allows an unauthenticated attacker with an established BGP session to cause a
Denial of Service (DoS).
In a BGP multipath scenario, when one of the contributing routes is flapping
often and rapidly, rpd may crash. As this crash depends on whether a route is a
contributing route, and on the internal timing of the events triggered by the
flap this vulnerability is outside the direct control of a potential attacker.
