medium Nessus Plugin ID 163514


The remote device may be affected by a unauthenticated redirection vulnerability.


The remote Citrix ADC or Citrix Gateway device is version 12.1.x prior to 12.1-65.15, 13.0.x prior to 13.0-86.17 or 13.1.x prior to 13.1-24.38. It may be, therefore, affected by a vulnerability that allows an attacker to redirect the user to a malicious website upon clicking an attacker-crafted link.

Please refer to advisory CTX457836 for more information.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


For versions 12.1.x, 13.0.x and 13.1.x, upgrade to 12.1-65.15, 13.0-86.17 and 13.1-24.38, or later, respectively.
