Re: Ultr@VNC

Use of that program does not make you less secure than any other open port.. if it opened a broad range for some reason than yes it would be much easier for a trojan to get through. I would think nowadays people using trojans would inject them into other processes anyway like IE and tag along on their ports or whatever anyway so I wouldn't worry about it. It is a good management practice to not leave the server running when you don't need it like previously mentioned. Having open ports generally is only a problem once you have a trojan on your system if you have other security items in place.
