Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is software commonly used by customer support representatives to remotely take over full control of a customer’s desktop and fix the issues on their computer. Issues arise with this software due to hackers using it for malicious purposes, such as when a hacker convinces an employee they are a customer support representative and have a victim activate RDP so the hacker can fix their “infected” computer. The hacker will then take over full control of the computer, allowing them access to everything on that system.
