Emergency Patch Alert

We have just been made aware of a new vulnerability in the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). RDP is the protocol that is used for remote access to computers.

If you access your computer from home, then you are using RDP. If you access your computer with your iPAD, then you are using RDP. The proliferation of slate devices (like the iPAD) in networks means that RDP is more common than in the past. This has made it a target for hackers to attempt to also access the computer in search of valuable data such as credit card, social security and other personal identification information.

Microsoft has released an emergency security patch for RDP. We will be applying this update over the course of the next two days. It is required to be applied to the computers directly, so we will be contacting those people that have RDP enabled on their computer to apply this patch. It will only take about 5 minutes of your time to allow us to secure it.
