RealVNC exploits in the wild
Active use of RealVNC to break into systems is being reported anonymously.

If you can share more details or just can report attempts, please let us know.

If you have any RealVNC exposed, check if you are hacked, and if not take measures immediately. If you want an inherently more secure solution check how to run vnc over ssh on your specific platform.

See more of the vulnerability in the May 15th diary by Kyle Haugsness.
