NSA Says Chinese Hackers Are Exploiting a Zero-Day Bug in Popular Networking Gear

Wednesday December 14, 2022. 09:40 PM , from Slashdot
The U.S. National Security Agency is warning that Chinese government-backed hackers are exploiting a zero-day vulnerability in two widely used Citrix networking products to gain access to targeted networks. From a report: The flaw, tracked as CVE-2022-27518, affects Citrix ADC, an application delivery controller, and Citrix Gateway, a remote access tool, and are both popular in enterprise networks. The critical-rated vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker to remotely run malicious code on vulnerable devices -- no passwords needed. Citrix also says the flaw is being actively exploited by threat actors. 'We are aware of a small number of targeted attacks in the wild using this vulnerability,' Peter Lefkowitz, chief security and trust officer at Citrix, said in a blog post. 'Limited exploits of this vulnerability have been reported.' Citrix hasn't specified which industries the targeted organizations are in or how many have been compromised.
