Citrix Vulnerability, Microsoft Data Breach, and Telnet Credentials Published

January 26, 2020 Digital Shadows

Following on from last week, Citrix released a first set of patches to fix a vulnerability (CVE-2019 -19781) affecting the company’s NetScaler ADC Application Delivery Controller and it’s Citrix Gateway. Viktoria and Richard Gold discuss how organizations can mitigate the risk.

Adam and Phil then join Viktoria to discuss other top stories of the week including 250 million Microsoft customer service and support records exposed on the web. The team also discusses a story where a list of Telnet credentials for more than 515,000 servers, home routers, and IoT devices was published on a hacking forum last week and how this story demonstrates the risk posed when threat actors are able to compromise large collections of IoT devices.
