I was dealing with a security vulnerability and wasn’t having much luck finding how to fix this issue online. I finally came across a few website posts that got me a little closer to what I was looking for. The full solution can be found below:
Here’s the report:

A Workaround is to connect only to terminal services over trusted networks.
All Microsoft-compatible RDP (5.2 or earlier) softwares
The flaw is due to RDP server which stores an RSA private key used for signing a terminal server’s public key in the mstlsapi.dll library, which allows remote attackers to calculate a valid signature and further perform a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks to obtain sensitive information.
Vulnerability Detection Method
Details: Microsoft RDP Server Private Key Information Disclosure Vulnerability (OID: 126.96.36.199.4.1.256188.8.131.522658)
Version used: $Revision: 1559 $
Here’s the solution:
- Start > Administrative Tools > Remote Desktop Connection Configuration (Or something similar to that)
- Right click on RDP-Tcp and go to Properties
- In General, set the layer to SSL TS1, Set the level to High, and choose a public SSL Cert if you’ve got one.
That should do it. Let me know if this works the same for you. Cheers.
