Citrix Data Breach: Were “Iranians” or “International Cyber Criminals” to Blame?


American software giant Citrix has suffered a major security breach, the company has admitted, but mystery surrounds the precise nature of the attack, after a new-on-the-scene cybersecurity company based in Los Angeles called “Resecurity®” said it had alerted the FBI and Citrix to the breach and claimed an Iranian threat group was to blame for exfiltrating over six terabytes of Citrix data.

That claim resulted in extensive airtime for the company, whose president, Charles Yoo, told reporters that the breach may have first happened a decade ago and that the attackers were targeting Citrix clients whose work spans FBI-related projects, NASA and aerospace contracts and work with Saudi Aramco.

It did not offer detail on how it identified the breach. Computer Business Review has left a request for further comment with the company.

Citrix confirmed a breach had taken place: CSIO Stan Black said in a short statement: “While our investigation is ongoing, based on what we know to date, it appears that the hackers may have accessed and downloaded business documents.”
