CVE-2024-39517: Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved: Upon processing specific L2 traffic, rpd can hang in devices with EVPN/VXLAN configured

First published: Wed Jul 10 2024(Updated: )

An Improper Check for Unusual or Exceptional Conditions vulnerability in the Layer 2 Address Learning Daemon (l2ald) on Juniper Networks Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved allows an unauthenticated, adjacent attacker to cause Denial of Service (DoS). In an EVPN/VXLAN scenario, when a high amount specific Layer 2 packets are processed by the device, it can cause the Routing Protocol Daemon (rpd) to utilize all CPU resources which causes the device to hang. A manual restart of the rpd is required to restore services. This issue affects both IPv4 and IPv6 implementations. This issue affects Junos OS: All versions earlier than 21.4R3-S7; 22.1 versions earlier than 22.1R3-S5; 22.2 versions earlier than 22.2R3-S3; 22.3 versions earlier than 22.3R3-S3; 22.4 versions earlier than 22.4R3-S2; 23.2 versions earlier than 23.2R2; 23.4 versions earlier than 23.4R1-S1. Junos OS Evolved: All versions earlier than 21.4R3-S7-EVO; 22.1-EVO versions earlier than 22.1R3-S5-EVO; 22.2-EVO versions earlier than 22.2R3-S3-EVO; 22.3-EVO versions earlier than 22.3R3-S3-EVO; 22.4-EVO versions earlier than 22.4R3-S2-EVO; 23.2-EVO versions earlier than 23.2R2-EVO; 23.4-EVO versions earlier than 23.4R1-S1-EVO, 23.4R2-EVO.
