Multiple Vulnerabilities in Juniper Products Could Allow for Remote Code Execution

ITS Advisory Number: 
2020-091
Date(s) Issued: 
Friday, July 10, 2020
Subject: 
Multiple Vulnerabilities in Juniper Products Could Allow for Remote Code Execution
Overview: 

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Juniper products, the most severe of which could allow for remote code execution. Juniper is a vendor for IT, networking and cybersecurity solutions. Successful exploitation of the most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow for remote code execution within the context of the application, an attacker gaining the same privileges as the logged-on user, or the bypassing of security restrictions. Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

 

THREAT INTELLIGENCE:

There are currently no reports of these vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild.

Systems Affected: 
  • Juniper Networks Junos OS

  • Junos Space and Junos Space Director prior to 20.1R1

  • Juniper Session and Resource Control prior to 4.12.0-R4, 4.13.0-R2

  • Juniper Secure Analytics 7.3.0, 7.3.1, 7.3.2 versions prior to 7.3.2 Patch 7, 7.3.3 versions prior to 7.3.3 Patch 3

Description: 

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Juniper products, the most severe of which could allow for remote code execution. 

A full list of all vulnerabilities can be found at the link located within the 'REFERENCES' section. 

Successful exploitation of the most severe of these vulnerabilities could allow for remote code execution within the context of the application, an attacker gaining the same privileges as the logged-on user, or the bypassing of security restrictions. Depending on the privileges associated with the user, an attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

Actions: 
  • After appropriate testing, immediately apply patches provided Juniper to vulnerable systems.

  • Run all software as a non-privileged user (one without administrative privileges) to diminish the effects of a successful attack.

  • Remind users not to visit un-trusted websites or follow links provided by unknown or un-trusted sources.

  • Inform and educate users regarding threats posed by hypertext links contained in emails or attachments, especially from un-trusted sources.

  • Apply the Principle of Least Privilege to all systems and services.
