Recently, there have been some articles about a remote-access Trojan called Kedi, which has masqueraded as a Citrix utility. The RAT itself is designed to look like Citrix tech to fool users.

It is impacting systems worldwide, so we wanted to provide an update and share some tips to be on the lookout for this RAT and push security best practices.

At Citrix, all our products go through security AND compliance checks. We would like to inform to all our customers, partners and community that the Kedi Trojan is not related to NetScaler Unified Gateway or its binaries in any way and does not reflect a Citrix vulnerability. The NetScaler Unified Gateway plugin binaries are digitally signed and cannot be tampered with. If you happen to be affected by this Trojan, please do ensure you check for the digital signature. Below is a way to check the digital signature of the Unified Gateway binary on Windows.
