GoGrid – Important Windows Security Notification

At GoGrid, we’re constantly striving to keep our customers’ infrastructure secure and up-to-date. That’s why our team has issued an advisory for all GoGrid customers to update their Windows servers for the vulnerability recently announced by Microsoft related to the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

The vulnerability affects all versions of Windows operating systems and may allow an un-patched system to be exploited. Therefore, we strongly recommend that all customers with Windows platforms patch their systems as soon as possible.

You can find Microsoft instructions to mitigate the risk here:

Customers with Microsoft Windows servers that want to enable automated Microsoft updates read the following information:

GoGrid also suggests that as a security precaution, customers should limit their RDP connections via TCP port 3389 to only selected dedicated IPs as your first line of defense against such exploits.

Sincerely,

GoGrid Support
