Description Ratul Gupta 2013-10-28 07:37:05 EDT
Synergy, an application for sharing keyboard and mouse between multiple computers, was found to be having it's GCM, CTR and OFB encryption broken.

It is found that synergy uses their own encryption protocol, and the encryption could be broken using an application: synergy-crack.

The issue is said to be fixed in Synergy 1.4.14.
