The RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) is included in the vast majority of Windows and IOS operating systems. Due to its remote desktop function, it is obviously a prime target for hackers.
The main risks with the RDP protocol are:
Usernames and passwords
It’s a known fact that most people use the same password to access various programs and devices, including remote desktops. This makes life much easier for hackers, who exploit this loophole to launch a brute force attack, which involves submitting all possible passwords until they find the correct one.
