Microsoft Remote Desktop Critical Vulnerability

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced the presence of a critical vulnerability with the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) service present in: Windows XP, Windows 7, Server 2003, Server 2008, and Server 2008 R2.  Exploitation of this vulnerability could allow unauthorized users remote access to affected systems.  Windows 8, Windows 10, Server 2012, Server 2016, and Server 2019 appear to be unaffected by this vulnerability.

In response, Microsoft has released patches for the affected operating systems.  Currently supported operating systems (Windows 7, Server 2008, and Server 2008 R2) should be patched to the latest available version as soon as possible.  Out-of-support systems (Windows XP and Server 2003) will also receive a patch dedicated to addressing this vulnerability.

Additional information regarding this vulnerability and where to obtain necessary patches are included in the following Microsoft TechNet article:
