Fix VNC remote control service installed
Remove or disable this service. If it is necessary, be sure to use well thought out (hard to crack) passwords. It is important to note that VNC truncates passwords to 8 bytes when authenticating, making it more susceptible to brute force attacks.
To protect data from eaves-droppers, tunneling VNC through SSH is recommended.
Additionally, restricting access to specific IP addresses using TCP wrappers is also recommended.
