ExtraHop - CVE-2019-0708 (BlueKeep)

This Playbook is part of the ExtraHop Reveal(x) Pack.#

This server received a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection request that is consistent with a known vulnerability, also known as BlueKeep, in older versions of Microsoft Windows. This vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker to remotely run arbitrary code on an RDP server. The attacker can then tamper with data or install malware that could propagate to other Windows devices across the network. Investigate to determine if this server is hosting a version affected by CVE-2019-0708: Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008.


  • Disable Remote Desktop Services if they are not required
  • Implement Network Level Authentication (NLA) on systems running supported versions of Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2
