Your professional opinions are appreciated.
About a month ago I had posted the below as a Citrix Client Access
Advisory and got several responses to the fact that it either it was not a
valid vulnerabilty or that it was a default configuration problem.
which may be true.
but consider this. The "only allow users to launch published
applications" checkbox only works in an environment when you are only
serving published applications and not in an environment where you are
serving desktops AND applications. You can visually tell by the
launch.ica if an nfuse menu is either serving an appy or a desktop (yes?).
a quick binary click session through hyperlinks would reveal whether or
not you could use this:

Any help here proving this valid/invalid would be hot. I have
considerable interest, but limited resources.
Windows Terminal Server NT 4.0
Using an IE Web Client and a Linux Citrix ICA client I was able
to gain access to executables and files on a restricted drive (c:\).
Originally I was changing the application name in an attempt
gain access to apps, but when I changed it to #gar I got an error message
conveying "The system cannot find the file specified."... which is always
an invitation to play.
Below is the listed launch.ica file that I used to
connect. The only parameter that was changed was the 'InitialProgram='parameter.
I simply removed the '#' symbol and it replaced it with a valid
application and its path (c:\wtsrv\system32\cmd.exe). I was able to
launch cmd.exe, telnet.exe (with arguments), the citrix toolbar, etc. but
had no escalation in priveledges.
The Citrix ICA Client for Linux was easy enough, since it allows you to
create the launch file on the fly...
Initial error with #gar as an application:
Here is a shot of the edited launch.ica file after execution:

[30 year old script kiddie]
#InitialProgram=v:\Documents and Settings\administrator\desktop\launch.ica
Command= ß--any input here would be fantastic
