Ticket #5870 (closed defect: fixed)
VRDP does not support RDP5.2

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.1.2||Keywords:||RDP5.1, RDP5.2, Man in the middle|
According to the VBox manual vrdp section at: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/UserManual.html#vrdp-crypt
VBox only support RDP5.1, as no configuration options for RDP5.2 are exposed to the user.
RDP5.1 as the manual says is not secure and is vulnerable to a MITM attack (detailed here: http://www.oxid.it/ca_um/topics/apr-rdp.htm).
Please add RDP5.2 support to VBox to provide some sort of machine authentication.
