The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a local security bypass vulnerability.


The version of Citrix XenDesktop Virtual Desktop Agent contains a flaw in the server-side USB redirection policy. This could allow an authenticated user to gain access to their USB devices when the server-side policy has been modified to disable USB redirection.
