Remote Desktop Hacking
Can you be sure your desktop is safe at work? The sad truth is that you can’t be positive, not while remote desktop hacking has become such a prominent threat in the field of cybersecurity. Hackers and bad actors can take control of computers connected to the Internet and create remote sessions where they can access sensitive information and even shut down your internal systems.
Remote Desktop Hackers Can Hurt You In Many Ways:

Remote desktop hacking is defined as when an attacker takes control of your computer from a remote location using a vulnerable Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). RDP is usually used as a way to give administrators or collaborators remote access to a device when they are not in the same office. Unfortunately, vulnerable RDP’s can be exploited by hackers who hijack the protocol to access your machine without consent.
