The rush to remote operations has changed the landscape in which malicious entities attack businesses. Much like the recently identified Zoom vulnerabilities which were quickly exploited by criminals, BW Cyber Services is alerting you to a critical Citrix Sharefile vulnerability that will require you to patch your Citrix software to prevent similar malicious activities.

If you are not familiar with Citrix ShareFile, it is an on-premises secure cloud environment for data storage with auditing capabilities and regulatory compliance controls.

For example, a company can remotely lock or wipe data from potentially compromised mobile devices, when lost or stolen. The newly identified security issues (CTX-CVE-2020-7473) specifically affect customer-managed on-premises Citrix ShareFile storage zone controllers, a component that stores corporate data behind the firewall.
