    The part I love from the .pdf write up is how they had to shut down RDP on the honeypot due to the fact that they were attacked so frequently. It made any external network traffic almost impossible. So all these attacks noted were outside of the RDP attack scope.

    Also of note is how one attacker modified Win firewall rules to allow RDP.
