Juniper NetScreen-Security Manager Remote DoS flaw

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains if Juniper NSM guiSrv is vulnerable to remote DoS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote server is affected by a remote denial of service flaw.

Description :

The version of Juniper NetScreen-Security Manager (NSM) installed on
the remote host may permit a possible hacker to deny service to legitimate
users using specially-crafted long strings to the guiSrv and devSrv
processes. A watchdog service included in Juniper NSM, though,
automatically restarts the application.

By repeatedly sending a malformed request, a possible hacker may permanently
deny access to legitimate users.
