RDP Remote Code Execution - CRITICAL

Speak With A Security Expert Now

On May 14th, Microsoft released a security update for a critical vulnerability in Microsoft Remote Desktop Services. The vulnerability is being tracked as CVE-2019-0708. If exploited, a remote and unauthenticated attacker can execute arbitrary code by sending crafted requests. User interaction is not required for successful exploitation.

Exploitation of CVE-2019-0708 has not been noted by Microsoft at this time. Due to the prevalence of RDP and the nature of this vulnerability, eSentire recommends customers take immediate action to address this vulnerability if impacted.

Denial of Service (DoS) proof-of-concept code is now publicly available on GitHub. This is likely to decrease the time until exploitation by threat actors occurs and emphasizes the need for organizations to patch CVE-2019-0708 as soon as possible. [3]
