Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2017-05-16 17:00:40 UTC
libvncserver is a core rhel pkg, not in epel7 anymore, unsure if that version needs fixing or not.  Triaging there.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2017-05-16 17:02:21 UTC
Seems the 2 linked CVE bugs are documented as WONTFIX (except apparently now bugzilla won't let me change the resolution to that now)

Comment 5 Petr Pisar 2019-04-17 13:56:08 UTC
EPEL still provides libvncserver:

$ koji list-tags --build=libvncserver-0.9.9-0.12.el7

The package changelog explains:

* Tue Jul 03 2018 Simone Caronni <negativo17@gmail.com> - 0.9.9-0.12 - Add EPEL limited arch package (missing on ppc64): https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL:Packaging#Limited_Arch_Packages
