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.

 KTS version & patch: 21.3.10.391

KVPN - if you’re asking if I’m using Kaspersky’s VPN then I am not - I’m using another VPN

I’m using Windows 10 Pro.   That’s all I know.

Hello @silver_mica

Thank you for replying:ok_hand_tone3:

KTS, no patch? 

So, when you look at winver you see  Windows 10 Pro. How interesting:thinking:

If it applies, please follow the guidance of  @Schulte@Berny & @Igor Kurzin, in topic Daily Network Attack raised by @astronaut954

I have no idea what a KTS patch is.   I don’t know what winver is.
