    Citrix vuln

    http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX112589

    http://secunia.com/advisories/24350/

    Trying to understand how this exploit actually works!

    If a user witha Citrix desktop using IE through it hits a contaminated page where does the exploit attack?

    Does it run on the remote desktop of the users or does it attack the Citrix server?

    Citrix is a bit of a mystery to me, it's in the office but I never use it. Just trying to identify how much of an issue this is to us.

    TIA

    Description:
    A vulnerability has been reported in Citrix Presentation Server Client, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
    it uses the vuln in the presentation server client to hit the actual user system..

    i'm using above 10.0 and this only affects 10.0 and prior, wouldn't think to many people would be using a prior version, but i guess it's a matter of waiting and seeing just how many get hit..

    cheers
