Just a heads up for everyone to review and perhaps tighten up their Remote Desktop access.

Some specific suggestions to consider:

  • Disable remote access for the administrator account
  • Ensure you have complex passwords for accounts allowed to remote access
  • Change the port that you use for remote access

For reference:

Please note, Happen do not change the passwords we are given for remote access unless required due to password policy, or we are instructed to.
