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
