New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

It is possible to log into the remote Citrix Access Gateway administrative web interface by providing default credentials. Knowing these, an attacker can gain administrative control of the affected application server and, for example, upload a new system image.
