A retro worm has been identified in the wild.  The worm is attacking through the RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol).  The worm looks for weak passwords on administrator accounts. For more information check out Kelly Jackson Higgins in Dark Readings, called “New Windows Worm Wriggling Through Networks“.

Make sure you are using tough passwords not “12345” or “password” etc.
