According to another recent report from VPN service provider Atlas VPN, starting with March 10, the number of RDP attacks have spiked significantly in the US, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Russia and China. This seems to correlate with the beginning of the population movement restrictions and lockdowns enforced around the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"In the US, the attacks peaked on April 7, 2020, with a total number of 1,417,827 attacks," the company said in its report. "Comparing the period of February 9 through March 9, 2020, to March 10 through April 10, 2020, the RDP attacks in the US jumped by 330%."

Between March 10 and April 15, the company recorded 148 million RDP attacks around the world. More than 32 million of them were detected in the US, or almost 900,000 attacks per day on average.
