Description

The version of Arista Networks EOS running on the remote device is affected by a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability. The switch's Rib agent may restart if a malicious BGP peer sends a malformed path attribute in an UPDATE message, resulting in a DoS condition.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
