Description

A crafted RSVP Path Object overloads the routing protocol daemon (RPD) process when received by a JUNOS Router. The crafted packet triggers a flaw which consumes close to 100% of the RE CPU time. The RPD process becomes unresponsive to commands via the management console, and all routing protocol updates are not processed (resulting on in all the routing protocols to drop their sessions). The RPD process does not recover on its own, requiring manual intervention.
