Current Description

A Double Free vulnerability in the software forwarding interface daemon (sfid) process of Juniper Networks Junos OS allows an adjacently-connected attacker to cause a Denial of Service (DoS) by sending a crafted ARP packet to the device. Continued receipt and processing of the crafted ARP packets will create a sustained Denial of Service (DoS) condition. This issue affects: Juniper Networks Junos OS on EX2200-C Series, EX3200 Series, EX3300 Series, EX4200 Series, EX4500 Series, EX4550 Series, EX6210 Series, EX8208 Series, EX8216 Series. 12.3 versions prior to 12.3R12-S17; 15.1 versions prior to 15.1R7-S8. This issue only affects the listed Marvell-chipset based EX Series devices. No other products or platforms are affected.

NIST CVSS score
NIST: NVD
Base Score:  7.5 HIGH
Vector:  CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H

Nist CVSS score does not match with CNA score
CNA:  Juniper Networks, Inc.
Base Score:  6.5 MEDIUM
Vector:  CVSS:3.1/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H


NVD Analysts use publicly available information to associate vector strings and CVSS scores. We also display any CVSS information provided within the CVE List from the CNA.

Note: It is possible that the NVD CVSS may not match that of the CNA. The most common reason for this is that publicly available information does not provide sufficient detail or that information simply was not available at the time the CVSS vector string was assigned.
