vnc and File Transfers - major security risk


Recommended Posts

If you use tightVNC as a server on Windows (and probably it's offshoots), make sure File Transfers is disabled. Especially if it reachable via public ip space.

There are major security issues concerning File Transfers with tightVNC and Windows. 


I don't have tightVNC server on a linux box so don't know about that setup.
