Security flaw in RealVNC 4.1.1

Security flaw in RealVNC 4.1.1

Postby mnemonicj » Wed May 24, 2006 10:02 am

We are currently developing a new product that would allow users to remotely install VNC, and manage current VNC installations.

Our viewer is totally 100% new code that we created from the VNC spec and not from the open source Real VNC source tree.

I got a big surprise today when I was testing the viewer code: I was able to view the remote machine without the proper password!
