Additionally, the ACSC has identified ongoing attempts to exploit a critical vulnerability in Citrix Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Citrix Gateway. Due to active exploitation of this vulnerability, organisations running the affected applications that did not implement Citrix’s mitigations before 11 January 2020 should attempt to identify and remediate successful exploitation of their Citrix servers.
