This vulnerability could result in arbitrary code execution without user interaction. The vulnerability has a CVSS 3.x base score of 9.8, indicating critical severity.
Citrix ADC/NetScaler Vulnerability
CVE-2023-3519 is an unauthenticated remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability impacting several versions of Citrix ADC and Citrix Gateway. This vulnerability allows a malicious actor to execute arbitrary code on affected appliances. It may also serve as an initial access vector for ransomware and other types of malicious campaigns. GreyNoise would like to thank the Capability Development team at Bishop Fox for collaborating with us to track this emerging threat. They have an excellent, detailed write-up for folks interested in more details.
