The recent disclosure of our CEO, Filippo Cavallarin, has rapidly spread creating a big fuss internationally and among the clients of Interlogica group, we are part of.

In fact, in making this a phenomenal discovery by Segment, we can list The RegisterSoftpediaSecurity Info and Reddit among several international headlines and social platforms Cyber Security-oriented.

The unveiled vulnerability, the Remote Code Execution of Microsoft Remote Desktop Client for Mac, focused on a criticality on the implementation of the RDP url schema, which enables the remote access to local resources.

In the rdp url scheme it is possible to specify a parameter that allows a malicious terminal server to read and write the user’s home directory without any interaction or knowledge.

The raising hype around the news has become so disruptive because all our clients are aware of it, giving us a wider exposure.
