Description

Certain IPv6 traffic flowing through SRX Series Services Gateways for the Data Center (SRX-1400,SRX-3400,SRX-3600,SRX-5600,SRX-5800) can trigger an invalid memory access that could lead to invalid statistics, or the possibility of memory corruption. The memory corruption could cause the flowd process to crash and reset. The flowd process recovers immediately, but causes a temporary interruption in traffic forwarding.
