Multiple failed login attempts were made by using the RDP protocol. We blocked the connection to stop the attacker from gaining access to your credentials and compromise your privacy

    The IP addresses are from Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Netherlands, and Germany.

    I have the RDP port opened on my router as i access my computer from outside the house. I know i can use anydesk or teamviewer but i prefer RDP.

    Any idea what is this?

    Hello @Serre,

    A Brute force attack is a method used by hackers to gain unauthorized access to a system or data by trying out all possible combinations of passwords or encryption keys until the correct one is found. Essentially, it's a trial-and-error method where the attacker systematically checks all possible combinations until the correct one is discovered. I would advise to get in touch with the Bitdefender Support engineers and ask them to have a look at this. They can advise on what to do next.
