RDP MS12-020 Denial of Service System Crash If you have RDP Enabled

I just made a video and posted it on YouTube. There is a fairly new Denial of Service Attack on Servers set up for Remote Desktop (RDP).

The attack sends a Buffer Overflow at Port 3389 and causes the Server to Crash.

Good Security Practice is to never access your servers over RDP, but utilize a VPN into your Network and then access the Servers through your internal network.

A fix-it from Microsoft is Available

If you are going to use it then make sure you apply this fix-it.
