The problem with terminal server is not any vulnerablities that can be
exploited, but the fact that administrator can be bruteforced (6 attempts
followed by reconnect) and that it is screaming its existence on port 3889.
If you use it, definitely change the port in the registry.

What's more, you deserve to be hacked.
