Citrix Systems has released security updates for vulnerabilities in its Virtual Apps and Desktops, and Workspace Apps products.

The addressed security problems are categorized as high-severity and could enable attackers with local access to the target to elevate their privileges and take control of the affected system.

Citrix products are widely used by organizations worldwide, so it’s critical to apply the available security updates to prevent intruders from having an easy way to escalate their privileges on breached systems.

Privilege escalation is a key stage in a broad range of cyberattacks, including cyber espionage and ransomware, as threat actors need to gain higher privileges to stealthily exfiltrate data, disable security software, or spread to other systems for ransomware attacks.
