First result:

"Welcome to GoToMyVNC's service scan.

This webservice will run a quick script to see if it can detect any 
machines on your LAN that are accepting VNC connections from the "real 
world". It checks the first ten Displays only, 0 thru 9.

Don't worry: a real VNC session is not initiated. This just checks to 
see if your firewall/router/gateway rules are all groovy."

Lesson: google first, ask questions later;)
