tear-drop (IDS Screen Next Gen Services)
Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 19.3R2 on MX Series routers (MX240, MX480 and MX960) running Next Gen Services with the MX-SPC3 services card.
Identify and drop fragmented IP packets that overlap, which protects against teardrop attacks. In teardrop attacks, the target machine uses up its resources as it attempts to reassemble the packets, and then it can no longer process valid traffic.
