Remote Desktop Protocol

Microsoft said that it has not seen any evidence that hackers have figured out a way to take advantage of a critical vulnerability in the Windows Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) that the company disclosed and patched on Tuesday. The statement comes in the wake of unconfirmed reports of working exploits for the RDP hole circulating online on Thursday. 

As a follow-up to its usual Patch Tuesday release this week, officials at Microsoft are warning users that an exploit against the recently disclosed Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) vulnerability for Windows is likely to come in the next 30 days.According to a supplementary entry on its Security Research & Defense blog, Microsoft claims the “attractiveness” of the RDP vulnerability may make it especially appealing to hackers.
