Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in the CLI component due to improper validation of user-supplied input before being processed as XML content. A local attacker can exploit this, via XML injection, to gain elevated privileges and execute arbitrary code as the root user.
