FireEye Warns of a New Method Used by Hackers Conducting RDP Attacks
According to a recent report by a cybersecurity company, FireEye, hackers who choose to conduct RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) attacks are seemingly using a new method to avoid detection and protective measures. Researchers warn that hackers have started increasingly using network tunneling, as well as host-based port forwarding techniques. RDP is a well-known component of Windows systems, which is typically used to allow users remote access to the system. However, hackers quickly discovered that this feature could be used for their own gain, which has sparked an entire trend revolving around this type of attack, as it is difficult to discover. In the report, FireEye has stated that hackers also prefer this method due to stability and several advantages regarding functionality. However, in order to initially compromise the targeted systems, hackers are required to take a different approach instead of regular infiltration methods, such as phishing.
