Citrix Server Detection

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 1924

Synopsis

A Citrix server is running on this machine.

Description

A Citrix server is running on this machine. Citrix servers allow a Windows user to remotely obtain a graphical login (and therefore act as a local user on the remote host). If an attacker gains a valid login and password, he may be able to use this service to gain further access on the remote host.

Solution

Disable this service if you do not use it. Ensure that strong encryption is being used.
