Citrix Systems is an American company dedicated to the development of software solutions for virtualization, computer network construction, and cloud computing services, including open source developer Xen.

The company has yet to comment on this, although it is highly probable that this information will be confirmed in the coming days, in the same way that it has happened in similar incidents. Neither is known any detail about the vendor or about the method used to compromise the accesses of the affected organizations.

A few weeks ago, another user of hacking forums on darknet disclosed the sale of a database allegedly owned by Citrix that contained about 2 million records of the company’s customers. The database, identified as citrix_leads_vivo, was on sale for 2.15 Bitcoin (about $20,000 USD at the current exchange rate).
