Blue Prism does not specify a port on the request to the Active Directory server, so it utilizes the default port for the LDAP protocol (389).

A recent security finding has identified that applications connecting to Windows Active Directory LDAP over a non-secure port 389 are vulnerable to attacks. To mitigate and completely resolve the security finding  prior to the  mandatory Microsoft Security  Patch  due  in March 2020.

In E1/E2/E3 the requests to lDAP on port 389 will be nullified after Patch in March.

Application teams will need to modify their connections to a secure LDAP using port 636

This is time-sensitive matter and would like to expedite a resolution, Please support this idea.
