Citrix issued an alert yesterday (07/18/2023) about a critical vulnerability (CVE-2023-3519) in all NetScaler (Citrix ADC) & Gateway systems. To date, no working exploits have been published.
Important ! There are no patches for NetScaler (Citrix ADC) version 12.1 or older. These systems have reached their EOL and will therefore no longer be equipped with the necessary fix. In this case please update to the latest 13.0 or 13.1 version.
The vulnerability allows anonymous remote code execution and thus unauthenticated attackers to take over various machines with root privileges.
As we hear from the Citrix community, more and more attacked systems are being found. The first exploits have also been available for purchase on the dark web for some time.

- Same version and build on all Citrix ADC
- Same Citrix ADC license version on all Citrix ADC
