@AlexLeadingEdge in your testing, were you using devices on the same local/private network to perform the failed RDP connection attempts? If so, then what you are seeing is expected as the "Prevent private network connections from being blocked" setting is On by default.

Hi Alex,

No, we used one network we control to RDP into another network we also control, using incorrect RDP login authentication details. The Event Viewer shows the failed logins, but Malwarebytes didn't block us.

The only thing I have noticed that may be a problem is that we haven't defined the RDP port as 3389, we left it blank so Malwarebytes would figure it out on its own.

@AlexLeadingEdge can you generate and share diagnostic logs from the endpoint you tested this on? I can help get this over to that team.

Also, to confirm what you are seeing, how many failed RDP attempts were tried?

Hi Alex,

Sorry about the delay in replying. We have multiple Malwarebytes installs with Malwarebytes certificate errors and the install isn't actually working, so I can't rule out it is one of these. Malwarebytes Support seem to be calling it "Error 577".

We are in the process of moving several hundred computers from Nebula to OneView so we are a little busy at the moment, but will investigate again after Christmas.
