I need to upgrade netscaler firmware to address CVE-2019-19781.
Citrix have following 2 links for firmware download:-
https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-adc/
https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-gateway/
Which link should I use to download the package?
These are virtual appliance on ESXi.

1. One Netscaler current firmware is NS10.5: Build 55.8007.e.nc.
It has following features enabled:-        
 Feature                        Acronym              Status
-------                        -------              ------
 Load Balancing                 LB                   ON
 Content Switching              CS                   ON
 SSL Offloading                 SSL                  ON
 Rewrite                        REWRITE              ON
 Responder                      RESPONDER            ON
 AppFlow                        AppFlow              ON
Shoudl I download the "Netscaler Gateway 10.5.e" frimware for it from the https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-gateway/ URL?
If I choose this one then the latest one is from Sep 25, 2017 which won't cover this CVE.

If I choose the "Netscaler Gateway 10.5" frimware then the latest is Jan 24, 2020 which shoudl cover this CVE.

If I choose the "Netscaler ADC release 10.5" frimware/virtual appliance for it from the https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-adc/ URL then the latest is from Jan 24, 2020 which should cover this CVE.
Which one shoudl I choose?

The software is the same all the time ...
But customers buying a "gateway" don't want to download an "ADC".
For the upgrade you take the "ncore" file.
