Kaspersky: RDP brute-force attacks have gone up since start of COVID-19

Updated: May 1, 2023

"Cyber-security firm Kaspersky says the number of brute-force attacks targeting RDP endpoints rose sharply since the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

According to a report published today, RDP brute-force attacks increased last month, when most countries around the globe imposed quarantines and stay-at-home orders, forcing companies to deploy more RDP systems online, increasing the attack surface for hackers.

"Since the beginning of March, the number of Bruteforce Generic RDP attacks has rocketed across almost the entire planet," the Russian antivirus vendor said today."
