Juniper October security updates for SRX and other network devices

Juniper Networks has released 40 security advisories to fix many vulnerabilities on Junos OS, SRX and multiple other network products.

The most recent security update fixes a High severity Denial of Service (DoS) vulnerability CVE-2020-1657 that impacts Junos SRX series devices.

“On SRX Series devices, a vulnerability in the key-management-daemon (kmd) daemon of Juniper Networks Junos OS allows an attacker to spoof packets targeted to site-to-site IPSec peers before a security association (SA) is established thereby causing a failure to set up the IPSec channel,” Juniper stated in the advisory.

As a result, an attacker could flood an impacted device with spoofed packets to cause a sustained DoS condition.
