The remote device may be affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Citrix ADC or Citrix Gateway device is version 12.1.x prior to 12.1-65.21, 12.1-FIPS, prior to 12.1-55.289, 13.0.x prior to 13.0-88.12 or 13.1.x prior to 13.1-33.47. It may, therefore, be affected by multiple vulnerabilities, as follows:

- Unauthorized access to Gateway user capabilities. (CVE-2022-27510)

Please refer to advisory CTX463706 for more information.

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


For versions 12.1.x, 12.1-FIPS, 13.0.x and 13.1.x, upgrade to 12.1-65.21,, 13.0-88.12 and 13.1-33.47, or later, respectively.
