LXer: SplashTop Security Hole Still Exists

Published at LXer:

Back in August we were the first web-site to share how SplashTop Linux could be hacked and the following month we shared about a SplashTop security problem where the contents of any attached hard drives are exposed freely to the network, if you're not running a hardware firewall. This issue was discovered by Kano, a Phoronix Forums member and the developer behind the Kanotix distribution. DeviceVM had been notified of this blatant security issue, but it still appears the problem has gone unresolved.
