RDP is not an acceptable remote access tool anymore. Please stop using it!

I’m still seeing RDP used on servers and desktops and it’s not safe! RDP get brute forced on Administrator account in days. Please close these firewall ports and use LogMeIn or some other more secure solution.

Most people don’t know there’s being brute forced until it’s way too late! Check your event logs on your servers, desktops and firewalls to see china is trying to get in. If you leave RDP open 24/7 and don’t monitor these logs, you’re most likely already infected.

Make sure to use Spiceworks and Hitman Pro to verify you’re not!
