Routers running vulnerable JUNOS software are susceptible regardless of the router's configuration. It is not possible to use firewall filters to protect vulnerable routers. This vulnerability is specific to Juniper Networks routers running JUNOS software. Routers that do not run JUNOS software are not susceptible to this vulnerability.
