DESCRIPTION

This security update addresses two privately reported vulnerabilities in the Remote Desktop Protocol, which may result to code execution if an attacker sends specially crafted rdp packets to an affected system.

There are reports indicating the emergence of proof of concept code in the wild. Trend Micro is able to provide solutions against PoC code related to this vulnerability.
