Has anyone seen this?  I hope it doesn't open a security hole in VNC.
The article suggests that VNC is "potentially vulnerable."

"Packages including X11, rsync, the Linux kernel, QT, mozilla, gcc, vnc,
and many other programs that have the ability to use network compression
are potentially vulnerable."
