Microsoft revealed that it has revived the Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCMan) app used by system admins to manage multiple remote desktop connections after it was stopped last year due to an important severity information disclosure bug it refused to fix.
After discontinuing the app, Microsoft advised customers to switch to Windows built-in Remote Desktop Connection (%windir%\system32\mstsc.exe) or the universal Remote Desktop client.
While stating that the flaw was fixed in RDCMan 2.82 released on July 27 through the Sysinternals documentation website, Microsoft explained that the new Remote Desktop Connection Manager version now runs on Windows 8.1 and higher versions or Windows Server 2012 and higher versions.
Microsoft noted, “User with OS versions prior to Win7/Vista will need to get version 6 of the Terminal Services Client. You can obtain this from the Microsoft Download Center: XP; Win2003.”
The recent development comes after Microsoft Azure CTO Mark Russinovich stated earlier this year that the company had revived RDCMan and added it to the Windows Sysinternals toolkit while also releasing version 2.8 in late June.
