Microsoft (and the NSA) have been urging Windows users and administrators to install patches to protect systems from the BlueKeep (CVE-2019-0708) vulnerability.

Is disabling Remote Desktop Services sufficient to protect any Windows device (any version) from the BlueKeep vulnerability?

  • @Steve Not my system. – RockPaperLizard Jun 6 '19 at 17:44

"... Remote Desktop Protocol ... Microsoft advises to disable it until the latest patches have been applied..."

  • So permanently disabling terminal service looks like an option. – Jasen Jun 7 '19 at 4:01
