Description

In the releases affected, JUNOS IPSec implementation does not ensure that an IPSec packet is long enough to contain the required authentication data. As a result, spoofing very short ESP or AH packets with known source, destination, Security Payload Identifier, and a high sequence number can cause a kernel panic.
