Windows Terminal Service Enabled Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Connects to the remote terminal server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The Terminal Services are enabled on the remote host.

Description :

Terminal Services allow a Windows user to remotely obtain
a graphical login (and therefore act as a local user on the
remote host).

If a possible hacker gains a valid login and password, he may
be able to use this service to gain further access
on the remote host. A possible hacker may also use this service
to mount a dictionary attack against the remote host to try
to log in remotely.

Note that RDP (the Remote Desktop Protocol) is vulnerable
to Man-in-the-middle attacks, making it easy for attackers to
steal the credentials of legitimates users by impersonating the
Windows server.

Solution :

Disable the Terminal Services if you do not use them, and
do not allow this service to run across the internet

Threat Level:

None / CVSS Base Score : 0
