  • Fend off attack

    Hi,

    Looking at my Resource monitor I find regularly *a lot* of processes such as conhost.exe rrdtool.exe winlogon.exe or LogonUI.exe. I installed Syspeace to fend off attack but I am wondering if there is anything else I can do.

    Hi There,

    Another method to fend off these attempts could include the following:

    - Change the port that is used by RDP. Make sure when doing this that the new port is open on the firewall, and close the old/default port if it's not used.
    - Set up some Firewall/IPSec rules to restrict RDP access to only your IP Address, or the IP Address range of your ISP.

    If you require any assistance you can contact our Tech support team at support@myhosting.com and they can help point you in the right direction.

    Hope this helps!

      Restricting RDP to my IP address range sounds good. I searched the web and I am not sure how to allow my ISP's address range. I tried connecting and reconnecting and they are something like 187.11.xx.xx . What should I specify then in the from and to box ? 187.11.0.0 to 187.11.255.255 ?

        I think you can specify it as 187.11.0.0/16.

        You can see some examples here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:R..._sample_ranges
        Also, the first section of this page has a calculator which you can check with: http://tuxgraphics.org/toolbox/netwo...lator_add.html

          Tima,
          I asked support to change port and since then it appears to be ok. I'll keep your post for reference in case things are coming back later.
