VNC Server Unauthenticated Access - Nessus

hi guys

Suse 10 SP2

Security guys run an app called Nessus for vulnerabilities and they found this one on my linux

VNC Server Unauthenticated Access

and I really don't know what they mean...

I can update vnc on these servers but there is not guarantee this will fix the issue and the other option is as stated in the articles

Solution :
Disable the No Authentication security type.

VNC Version
# rpm -qa | grep vnc

According to this I sould update xorg-x11-Xvnc and tightvnc packages? if it were the case?

thanks a lot

Hello, first the better option is to check wheter anybody uses VNC or not.
It might get installed by default and if nobody uses it, the better option is to uninstall such packages.
