The latest on Citrix's cyberattack

Hackers likely used password spraying to enter Citrix Systems Inc.'s network in a breach first discovered in March. Password spraying is a type of cyber attack that attempts to gain access to accounts via commonly used terms. The Fort Lauderdale-based software company (Nasdaq: CTXS) told the South Florida Business Journal that it has hired multiple cyber security firms to assist with the investigation as it continues to work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to find out who is behind the breach.
