Citrix Bugs Allow Unauthenticated Code Injection, Data Theft

Multiple vulnerabilities in the Citrix Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Gateway would allow code injection, information disclosure and denial of service, the networking vendor announced Tuesday. Four of the bugs are exploitable by an unauthenticated, remote attacker.

The Citrix products (formerly known as NetScaler ADC and Gateway) are used for application-aware traffic management and secure remote access, respectively, and are installed in at least 80,000 companies in 158 countries, according to a December assessment from Positive Technologies.

Other flaws announced Tuesday also affect Citrix SD-WAN WANOP appliances, models 4000-WO, 4100-WO, 5000-WO and 5100-WO.

Attacks on the management interface of the products could result in system compromise by an unauthenticated user on the management network; or system compromise through cross-site scripting (XSS). Attackers could also create a download link for the device which, if downloaded and then executed by an unauthenticated user on the management network, could result in the compromise of a local computer.

“Customers who have configured their systems in accordance with Citrix recommendations [i.e., to have this interface separated from the network and protected by a firewall] have significantly reduced their risk from attacks to the management interface,” according to the vendor.

Threat actors could also mount attacks on Virtual IPs (VIPs). VIPs, among other things, are used to provide users with a unique IP address for communicating with network resources for applications that do not allow multiple connections or users from the same IP address.

The VIP attacks include denial of service against either the Gateway or Authentication virtual servers by an unauthenticated user; or remote port scanning of the internal network by an authenticated Citrix Gateway user.

“Attackers can only discern whether a TLS connection is possible with the port and cannot communicate further with the end devices,” according to the critical Citrix advisory. “Customers who have not enabled either the Gateway or Authentication virtual servers are not at risk from attacks that are applicable to those servers. Other virtual servers e.g. load balancing and content switching virtual servers are not affected by these issues.”

A final vulnerability has been found in Citrix Gateway Plug-in for Linux that would allow a local logged-on user of a Linux system with that plug-in installed to elevate their privileges to an administrator account on that computer, the company said.

Qualcomm Bugs Open 40 Percent of Android Handsets to Attack

Researchers identified serious flaws in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC and the Hexagon architecture that impacts nearly half of Android handsets.

Six serious bugs in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile chipset impact up to 40 percent of Android phones in use, according research released at the DEF CON Safe Mode security conference Friday.

The flaws open up handsets made by Google, Samsung, LG, Xiaomi and OnePlus to DoS and escalation-of-privileges attacks – ultimately giving hackers control of targeted handsets. Slava Makkaveev, a security researcher with Check Point, outlined his discoveryand said while Qualcomm has provided patches for the bug, most OEM handset makers have not yet pushed out the patches.

Click to register!

The faulty Qualcomm component is the mobile chip giant’s Snapdragon SoC and the Hexagon architecture. Hexagon a brand name for Qualcomm’s digital signal processor (DSP), part of the SoC’s microarchitecture. DSP controls the processing of real-time request between the Android user environment and the Snapdragon processor’s firmware – in charge of turning voice, video and services such GPS location sensors into computationally actionable data.

Makkaveev said the DSP flaws can be used to harvest photos, videos, call recordings, real-time microphone data, and GPS and location data. A hacker could also cripple a targeted phone or implant malware that would go undetected.

The six flaws are CVE-2020-11201, CVE-2020-11202, CVE-2020-11206, CVE-2020-11207, CVE-2020-11208 and CVE-2020-11209. Using a fuzzing technique against handsets with the vulnerable chipset, Check Point was able to identify 400 discrete attacks.

The prerequisite for exploiting the vulnerabilities is the target would need to be coaxed into downloading and running a rogue executable.

Qualcomm declined to answer specific questions regarding the bugs and instead issued a statement:

“Providing technologies that support robust security and privacy is a priority for Qualcomm. Regarding the Qualcomm Compute DSP vulnerability disclosed by Check Point, we worked diligently to validate the issue and make appropriate mitigations available to OEMs. We have no evidence it is currently being exploited. We encourage end users to update their devices as patches become available and to only install applications from trusted locations such as the Google Play Store.” – Qualcomm Spokesperson

The flaws were brought to Qualcomm’s attention between February and March. Patches developed by Qualcomm in July. A cursory review of vulnerabilities patched in the July and August Google Android Security Bulletins reveal patches haven’t been yet been pushed to handsets. For that reason, Check Point chose not to reveal technical specifics of the flaws.

What technical details that are available can be found in a DEF CON Safe Mode video posted to online. Here Makkaveev shares some technical specifics.

Creating a side-scroller mobile game with Unreal Engine 4 (Part 7)

In the final part of our series (we’ve arrived!) we’ll add some polish to our game. To do this, we’ll refine our level by adding a menu system (main and pause menus), which is a necessary part of any game. We will also add background sound to our game.

Before proceeding forward, a quick recap. We started by learning Unreal basics—how to navigate and create a HUD (heads up display). We also created some enemy AI and winning and losing mechanisms. We even tested the game on an Android device. These are core components of any mobile side-scroller game. In this final part we’ll polish our game so that it can be presentable.

You can find the other parts of the series here.


Personalization, instant expertise, game-changing user experiences — these are just a few of the values machine learning can add to mobile apps. Subscribe to the Fritz AI Newsletter to discover more.


Main Menu

Open the content browser and navigate to the maps folder. The idea behind creating a main menu is pretty similar to creating a level/map. If you think about it, a main-menu is also a type of level/map. The function of the menu is to list options and load our gameplay levels.

Go to the content browser panel and navigate to the Maps folder (Content->SideScrollerBp->Maps). Right click on the Maps folder, click “Level”, and name it “MainMenu”. Open it by pressing Enter.

When you open the level you will see a black screen in viewport (that’s normal). This level is empty it has nothing inside it. That’s exactly what we want for our menu. We only want to display buttons that can perform some action or another.

Switch over to the Blueprints folder (Content->SideScrollerBP->Blueprints) and create a new widget blueprint and name it “Menu”. Double click to open it.

If you remember from previous articles, we used widget blueprints to display information such as time, coins, and health. We can also create buttons that can perform various actions.

Add 2 buttons and 2 text fields on the canvas. You can probably see where this is going…

We’re aiming for a quite simple main menu that has only 2 buttons: “Play” and “Quit”.

Change the text to “Play” for first button and “Quit” for the second button. Change their properties, as shown below (both buttons should have the same properties, except for their texts). You can change the font to your personal preference, but keep in mind it should not overflow the button.

Highlight the “Play” button and add an “on clicked” property. The “on clicked” property is used to perform an action when a button is clicked. This action can be anything—in our case, we want to open a level.

Drag a node from the button and type “open level”.

Type the level name — “SideScrollerExampleMap”. Hit compile and save.

Here, we’re specifying which level well be opened when the “Play” button is clicked—hence the name “SideScrollerExampleMap”. If you go into the Maps folder, you’ll find your level names there.

You can change the name of the level by pressing F2. (If you change the level/map name make sure to change it in “open level”, too)

Now click on “Quit” button and select add another “on clicked” event. This time we want to exit our game.

Bring out the node from the button and type “Quit game”.
