Critical Citrix DDoS Bug Shuts Down Network access

An important security hack on the Citrix Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Citrix Gateway can allow cyber-attackers to crash all corporate networks without the need for authentication.

The two affected Citrix products (formerly NetScaler ADC and Gateway) are used for traffic management monitoring software and secure remote access, respectively. The co-operative released a security report on Tuesday on risk, followed as CVE-2021-22955, which allows unauthenticated denial of service (DoS), due to uncontrolled use of resources, according to the advice.

Citrix also experienced the same low density disturbance due to uncontrolled use of the app. It touches on both previous products, as well as the Citrix SD-WAN WANOP Edition service. The latter provides improved Citrix SD-WAN deployment, allowing secure connectivity and seamless access to virtual, cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications across all business and branch environments.
