Cyber attacks via U-VNC

Postby Al Catraz » 2013-10-29 17:26

I have been using U-VNC for a while now.. FREE VERSION for my home use..
I upgraded to WIN7 and am having some problems with communicating -- but that is not the main issue..
I found that on the SERVER side there are many attempts to access the system via the U-VNC -- It is a NEW/CLEAN WIN7 so I cannot understand what/who already is trying to access the system by scanning the ports.. I have the AUTHENTICATE (accept) option set so I can see the IPs that is trying to access while waiting for the ACCEPT....
Seem to be from East-Europe !
Anybody has any idea what this could be ? I scanned for Trojan-Horse infections but system is said to be clean..

I most cases setting another port then 5900 wil stop the attack.
They mostly use networkscanner to test port 5900 before the launch a brut force passwd attack.
