CVE-2016-4924

Impact by CVSS Score
  • ID: CVE-2016-4924
Summary:

An incorrect permissions vulnerability in Juniper Networks Junos OS on vMX may allow local unprivileged users on a host system read access to vMX or vPFE images and obtain sensitive information contained in them such as private cryptographic keys. This issue was found during internal product security testing. Juniper SIRT is not aware of any malicious exploitation of this vulnerability. No other Juniper Networks products or platforms are affected by this issue. Affected releases are Juniper Networks Junos OS 15.1 prior to 15.1F5; 14.1 prior to 14.1R8

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity:

Specialized access conditions or extenuating circumstances do not exist. The following are examples: The affected product typically requires access to a wide range of systems and users, possibly anonymous an untrusted (e.g., Internet-facing web or mail server). The affected configuration is default or ubiquitous. The attack can be performed manually and requires little skill or additional information gathering. The 'race condition' is a lazy one (i.e., it is technically a race but easily winnable).

Authentication:

One instance of authentication is required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is considerable informational disclosure. Access to some system files is possible, but the attacker does not have control over what is obtained, or the scope of the loss is constrained. An example is a vulnerability that divulges only certain tables in a database.

Integrity Impact:

There is no impact to the integrity of the system.

Availability Impact:

There is no impact to the availability of the system.
