Juniper NetScreen-Security Manager Remote DoS flaw Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains if Juniper NSM guiSrv is vulnerable to remote DoS
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote server is affected by a remote denial of service flaw.
The version of Juniper NetScreen-Security Manager (NSM) installed on
the remote host may allow a possible hacker to deny service to legitimate
users using specially-crafted long strings to the guiSrv and devSrv
processes. A watchdog service included in Juniper NSM, though,
automatically restarts the application.
By repeatedly sending a malformed request, a possible hacker may permanently
deny access to legitimate users.
