CVE-2024-39560: Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved: Memory leak due to RSVP neighbor persistent error leading to kernel crash

First published: Wed Jul 10 2024(Updated: )

An Improper Handling of Exceptional Conditions vulnerability in the routing protocol daemon (rpd) of Juniper Networks Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved allows a logically adjacent downstream RSVP neighbor to cause kernel memory exhaustion, leading to a kernel crash, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS). The kernel memory leak and eventual crash will be seen when the downstream RSVP neighbor has a persistent error which will not be corrected. System kernel memory can be monitored through the use of the 'show system statistics kernel memory' command as shown below: user@router> show system statistics kernel memory Memory               Size (kB) Percentage When   Active                 753092     18.4% Now   Inactive               574300     14.0% Now   Wired                  443236     10.8% Now   Cached                1911204     46.6% Now   Buf                     32768      0.8% Now   Free                   385072      9.4% Now Kernel Memory                             Now   Data                   312908      7.6% Now   Text                     2560      0.1% Now ...
