A vulnerability in Junos OS SNMP MIB-II subagent daemon (mib2d) may allow a
remote network based attacker to cause the mib2d process to crash resulting in a
denial of service condition (DoS) for the SNMP subsystem.

not impact routing, switching or firewall functionalities.

SNMP is disabled by default on devices running Junos OS.
