For at least a month - I’ve been getting multiple brute force RDP attacks on port 3389. I have remote desktop setup for those times I am out of the office and cannot physically use this computer. I’m attacked from what looks like dozens of IP address. Is there anything I should do to minimize risk?
I’m using Windows 10 Pro. The password to this computer is 32 random characters long. there is a PIN that I use every day that is much shorter. I assume that the PIN isn’t useable if you’re not physically in front of the computer using the attached keyboard - but I don’t know much about Windows 10 and how it should work. I have an old router, therefore my computer sits behind the router. I’m also using a VPN. Would a VPN make any difference? Or, have they simply found my actual IP address and getting in through that? My VPN IP address changes every day.
