  1. Is there any malware that can infect a remote desktop client from the server?

    Any virus that spreads across Mapped Drives is typical. This is how one infected computer
    can contaminate a whole company (either Mapped Drives or Remote Desktop).

    This kind of attack is hard to prevent. Tools like Spybot S&D has TeaTimer and
    AVG has Resident Scanning to find when a change is being made to an existing program.
