CVE-2011-1775 tigervnc: vncviewer can send password to server without proper validation of the X.509 certificate
Last modified: 2015-07-31 08:41:52 EDT
It was reported  that vncviewer could prompt for, and send, authentication credentials to a remote server without first properly validating the X.509 certificate. This could allow a malicious server to obtain a client's credentials because the client does not indicate to the user that a certificate is bad or missing.
A proposed patch  is being discussed.
This flaw does not affect older versions of tigervnc due to X.509 certificate handling being a new feature (new to the forthcoming 1.1.0):
