MS15-067: Description of the security update for Windows RDP: July 14, 2015

This security update resolves a vulnerability in Windows that could allow remote code execution if an attacker sends a specially crafted sequence of packets to a targeted system that has the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) server service enabled. By default, the RDP server service is not enabled on any Windows operating system. Systems that do not have the RDP server service enabled are not at risk. To learn more about the vulnerability, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-067.
