Takes the pain out of online forms

| HT & Movies News | Posted: Mar 7, 2009 3:08 am

Our Download of the Day today is TightVNC 1.3.10.

 

TightVNC is a free remote control software package derived from the popular VNC software. With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer.
TightVNC is:

 

- Free, GPL-licensed, with full source code available;
- Useful in remote administration, remote customer support, education, and for many other purposes;
- Cross-platform, available for Windows and Unix, compatible with other VNC software;
- Well maintained and being actively developed.
- This version includes both the VNC viewer and server.

 

Download of the Day: TightVNC 1.3.10

 

The latest version includes the following changes:

 

Changes in Version 1.3.10

 

- Windows Server: Impersonating currently logged on user while
processing file transfer requests. Disabling file transfers if
current user is unknown or nobody is logged in.

 

- Windows Server: Fixed rendering problems when multiple CopyRects
were combined with normal updates. That could caused distortions
that never updated even with full-screen polling active.

 

- Windows Server: Added new "-silent" command-line option which
modifies the behavior of -install, -reinstall and -remove options
and makes them not show informational windows on successful
execution. Note that -silent should precede other respective
options in the command line.

 

- Windows Server: LastRect, XCursor and RichCursor pseudo-encodings
were not properly enabled if they preceded true encodings in the
SetEncodings protocol message.

 

- Windows Viewer: Fixed integer overflow vulnerabilities reported
by Core Security Technologies. A specially modified VNC server
could currupt the heap of the connected viewer causing its crash
or malfunction.
