What functions do these devices perform? Juniper describes them as integrated firewalls and VPNs with DoS and DDoS protection and traffic management.
Is other Juniper gear affected? Juniper says there’s no evidence it is. The company makes products with a separate operating system called Junos, but says, “We have no evidence that the SRX or other devices running Junos are impacted at this time.” ScreenOS is the operating system running on NetScreen devices that were developed by the company NetScreen, which Juniper bought for $4 billion in stock in 2004.
