Citrix SD-WAN Center Unauthenticated Remote Command Injection

critical Nessus Plugin ID 128304


The remote host is affected by a remote command injection vulnerability.


The remote Citrix SD-WAN Center is affected by a remote command injection vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input in the ping action of DiagnosticController. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to execute arbitrary commands on the remote host with root privileges.

Note that Nessus can perform an additional check for this vulnerability. To do so, re-run the scan with the setting 'Perform thorough tests (may disrupt your network or impact scan speed)' enabled.


Upgrade to version 10.2.3 or later
