Description

When an incoming IPv6 packet requires the router to generate an ICMPv6 response, the response might not be generated and the buffer containing the original packet might not be released. Eventually the Packet Forwarding Engine CPU might exhaust its packet memory and reboot. This problem exists in all JUNOS Release 6.x software built between February 24 and June 19, 2004 (inclusive) running on M-series and T-series routing platforms.
