and IT focused information workers
who constantly need to access remote systems with different protocols
(like RDP, VNC, SSH, HTTP/S, and many more.).

Vulnerability summary
-------------------------------------------------
This vulnerability allows a remote attackers to bypass the
authentication of the tunnel
and gain access to an internal network. The problem is that, once a
SSH tunnel is created on the bridge host with a Secure Gateway, this
tunnel will listen on the address 0.0.0.0 on the port opened ad hoc by
RoyalTS (higher than 50000), leaving the possibility for anyone to
exploit the tunnel without having to authenticate to it.
The attacker could easily bruteforce the ssh/rdp login in the internal
network, or,
even worse, if the hosts aren't patched, could use some known exploits
and perform lateral movements.
The vulnerability is fixed in the current major release (Royal TS V5).
