Last week, Juniper Networks issued 21 security advisories informing consumers of over 200 vulnerabilities impacting its devices. The products affected by the security flaws include Northstar Controller, Contrail Networking, Junos Space, and Junos OS (including on SRX, EX, PTX, QFX, and MX series devices).
