MS Terminal Services for Windows Server, Remote Assistance for Windows XP and RDP allow for remote interactive connections to Windows Servers and Windows XP machines.  Just like Telnet and SSH, these can be powerful connections that in most cases are only protected with a username and password.  There are several publicly available tools that will perform dictionary and bruteforce attacks against Terminal Services and Remote Assistance services.  These tools include TSGrinder and TScrack for Windows and Rdesktop (with a patch) for *nix.  In this video we will see some example attacks using these tools.

For further details and references on all technology and concepts seen in the video, please read its companion article, Tutorial: MS Terminal Server Cracking.

Enjoy and keep an eye out for future videos. Feel free to post comments and suggestions for future videos.

Thanks,
