Last month, Tripwire security researchers Lane Thames and Andrew Swoboda did a presentation that dug into research on Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol, specifically the pre-authentication portions of RDP at Hacker Halted in Atlanta.
The session culminated in the release of a new RDP Fuzzer and a discussion around the vulnerabilities it has already discovered.
Listen to this special security slice podcast hosted by Tyler Reguly and hear Lane Thames and Andrew Swoboda discuss why Python is becoming more popular amongst security researchers and the key differences between ‘dumb’ and ‘smart’ fuzzers.

Check out Tripwire SecureScan™, a free, cloud-based vulnerability management service for up to 100 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on internal networks. This new tool makes vulnerability management easily accessible to small and medium-sized businesses that may not have the resources for enterprise-grade security technology – and it detects the Shellshock and Heartbleed vulnerability.
