VNC Vulnerability

Postby daveg » Mon Aug 28, 2006 3:31 pm

Hello,

We've seen a big increase in attacks on servers running RealVNC, there is a known vaunrability on older versions of VNC that will allow an attacker access to the desktop of a server. We recommend to anyone that is running this software that they check that their servers are up to date. If not it should be patched immediately. Patches are available online @ http://www.realvnc.com/upgrade.html

Also if you are using this software we recommend that you limit access by IP address and that you lock your desktop whenever the server is not in use.
Thanks
Dave Geoghegan
