Is the current version of Remote Desktop secure?

I remember when I first started using Remote Desktop with Windows XP Pro many years ago, that it wasn't secure to use without vpn.

"Since Version 6 (Vista/2003 SP1 upwards) the RDP protocol has supported TLS and 128bit encryption via RC4. It's not military grade unless you are talking about the military in the 90s, but for most uses it will be more than enough.

As far as the trusted CA message goes, do you trust your server to be the one providing the certificate? It's akin to signing your own SSL certificate as far as I know."
