Morto Computer Worm Infecting Computers via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)

/
A new worm called Morto has begun making the rounds on the Internet in the last couple of days, infecting machines via RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). The worm is generating a large amount of outbound RDP traffic on networks that have infected machines, and Morto is capable of compromising both servers and workstations running Windows. If you have any questions or need assistance, please let me know and I will follow up with you.
