When you cannot RDP to a target because of “CredSSP-encryption Oracle remediation”: apply your target security patches.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/29

If you get the below error, then your RDP target server needs to be patched.

You can choose to stay vulnerable and modify your policy or registry settings as explained in the first linked article below: that is a temporary “workaround” which I do not recommend. Please update your RDP target servers in stead.

English:

[Window Title]
Remote Desktop Connection

[Content]
An authentication error has occurred.
The function requested is not supported

Remote computer: rdp.example.org
This could be due to CredSSP-encryption Oracle remediation.
For more information, see https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=866660

[OK]

Windows 10 added one more account: WDAGUtilityAccount

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/28

As of Windows 10 fall creators update, the WDAGUtilityAccount was added, so the default accounts on such a machine are these:

  • Administrator
  • DefaultAccount
  • Guest
  • WDAGUtilityAccount

Then there is one account for the user that installed the system (which is named by that user).

Windows Defender Application Guard is the reason for WDAGUtilityAccount as explained here:

A while ago, Windows 10 started to popup an Edge browser window after reboot without an internet connection

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/21

Does anyone know how to disable Edge popping up with a failed link www.msftconnecttest.com/redirect on machines blocked by a router?

This happens on the PC running Windows 10 Pro N (winver shows 1709 build 16299.371) that is not allowed to do any internet access.

Later:

This seems to be intended as per these links:

TL;DR:

This can happen on Windows 8 and up when Windows thinks there is a partial network connection and a logon to a proxy or captive portal might solve the solution.

Allowing these in the proxy for port 80 solves the issue:

  • *.msftconnecttest.com
