Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Prague, Czech Republic - Mar 02, 2017 - RDS-Tools reminds businesses to keep their RDS Connections under protection. One of the oldest forms of automated attacks is the brute force attack, where password discovery is attempted by trying all combinations of letters and numbers to gain access to an account. Brute Force attacks have become increasingly sophisticated and efficient, now more often using databases of known users and passwords stolen from various systems. Any web application, consumer or enterprise, with a public web interface and user login is at risk for a brute force attempt.
While volumetric limits can be set up to prevent a repetitive attack, attackers now spread attempts over hundreds of connections at a slow rate of speed to evade those limits.
If the Windows server is publicly available on Internet, then there is a 100% probability that hackers, network scanners and brute force robots are trying to guess Administrator logins and passwords – as you read this. Using current logins and password dictionaries, they will automatically try to login to the server hundreds to thousands times every minute. Not only this is bad for the server’s security, but it can also consume a lot of its resources (CPU and bandwidth)!
Furthermore, this risk is especially high when opening an RDS session : robots scan open ports and try to steal identification in order to log in. Every minute, hundreds to thousands of combinations are automatically tested on the server by external IPs. To counter efficiently this threat, administrators need to install an anti-spyware.
Detect and Block Cyber Attacks with a Powerful Defender
Generally, there is a flaw in the Windows system security that allows malicious software to spy the connections. These various spyware on Internet are very dangerous for the server. Every time a user connects, one or more of these potentially harmful software might get installed on the machine without the user’s knowledge. This can happen when loading a webpage for example, or when clicking an advertisement, a suspicious attachment in a mail, etc. Their purpose : to collect and transmit pieces of information about the environment where they run. It means, the computer, laptop, server, mobile, etc. Brute force attacks are typically carried out to discover log-in credentials and gain access to websites for the purposes of data theft, vandalism, or the distribution of malware, which in turn can be used to launch brute force, DDoS and various types of cyber attacks on other targets. Some of them are used as profilers to gather data for email targeting.
Even without successfully penetrating an online property, brute force attacks can flood servers with traffic, resulting in significant performance issues for the site under attack. This can infect the machine and runs at anytime in an unexpected way, slowing down business productivity, impacting in the meantime the CPU and Bandwidth consumption.
