Vulnerability in Citrix Receiver with Online Plug-in for Windows could result
in arbitrary code execution

Document ID: CTX134681 / Created On: Sep 12, 2012 / Updated On: Sep 12, 2012 

Severity: Medium 

Description of Problem 

A vulnerability has been identified in the Citrix Receiver with Online Plug-in 
for Windows that could potentially allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code 
on the client device in the context of the currently logged in user. 

This vulnerability is present in all versions of the Citrix Receiver for 
Windows up to and including version 3.2 and all versions of the Citrix Online 
Plug-in for Windows up to and including version 12.1. 

This vulnerability has been assigned the following CVE: 

CVE-2012-4603 

What Customers Should Do 

This vulnerability has been addressed in the following products: 

- - The Citrix Receiver for Windows version 3.3 with Online Plug-in for Windows 
version 13.3 and later 
- - Version 12.3 of the Citrix Online Plug-in for Windows. 

Citrix recommends that customers upgrade their Citrix Receivers and Online 
Plug-ins to these versions and later. These new versions can be obtained from 
the following location: 

https://www.citrix.com/English/ss/downloads/results.asp?productID=1689163 

Mitigating Factors 

To conduct a successful exploit, an attacker would have to convince a user to 
manually lauch a specially crafted malicious file from an SMB or WebDAV 
fileserver. Deployments that prevent connections to potentially untrustworthy 
fileservers will be less exposed to this vulnerability.
