When running a Siteminder component such as Web Agent or CA Access Gateway (SPS), how to solve the vulnerability CVE-2022-27518?




At first glance, this vulnerability is strictly related to Citrix products, and outside Siteminder.

To fix this issue, follow the steps given on this Citrix page (1).

There's nothing to do on the Siteminder side. Siteminder has NO embedded Citrix product; as such, it's expected not to find the ns.conf in the Siteminder component.

Even if a Siteminder component is installed and run along the Citrix one, the problem resides in Citrix, not in Siteminder. As such, and as per the CVE-2022-27518, upgrade the Citrix component to the version that solves this vulnerability.
