Junos OS: Attackers could hijack admin sessions

To prevent possible attacks, admins should update their network devices based on Junos OS and Junos OS Evolved. Otherwise, attackers could paralyze devices or even execute their own code.

Most dangerous is an XSS vulnerability (CVE-2021-31355 “high“), which attackers could use to persist in systems. How this could work in detail is currently not known. If an attack is successful, they could, for example, record access data from admins sessions.
