Cyber criminals are looking to hack into your system and RDP is their latest way to do so.
RDP or Remote Desktop Protocol is a type of protocol that provides users the ability to connect to another computer over a network connection. Many different types of software utilize this, most notable the Remote Desktop Connection which is built into all Windows PCs.
If setup properly these types of software are completely safe to use, however, if you are unsure what you are doing this can potentially lead to your system being infiltrated. Hackers can utilize phishing attacks to steal your credentials and login into your system, or brute force your network if your ports are not configured properly. Always ensure your system is set up properly if using a remote connection.
