Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Firewall Change 5/28/2019

May 22, 2019

Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) service is commonly used to connect to a Windows computer remotely. Microsoft has identified a critical vulnerability in RDP that allows a computer to be infected with a worm that can spread from one computer to another. No username and password is required to exploit this bug, making it especially dangerous. As it stands today, our campus firewall permits RDP access directly from the internet, which leaves us at risk for the inevitable RDP worm that will follow shortly. So, we must make a change to better protect our computing resources.
