Technical Analysis

‘unspecified password’: <<< %s(un='%s') = %u.
This was a manufacturer backdoor account left on the device. Interestingly, when experts analyzed the OS Images, they assessed that the password for the backdoor account was created in a way that would look like an innocuous string when analyzed.
While Juniper isn’t very common on enterprise environments, especially running ScreenOS, they still existed in smaller satellite offices.
