Hey guys,
I have a question about this sweet new program that I got off of the list that RainDawg provided for the top 46 freeware programs. It is called [email protected] and it is a remote computer control application. Basically it runs a little server on your computer and then you can use a web based java applet to see and control the computer from a remote location. To use it I had to put holes for ports 5800 and 5900 in my firewall.

Now, my friend has raised a question that I don't know the answer to. Does this kind of program make you more vulnerable to a hacker attack? It is password protected, I think that I forgot to mention that before. Thanks for any help.
