SplashTop Security Hole Still Exists
Back in August we were the first web-site to share how SplashTop Linux could be hacked and the following month we shared about a SplashTop security problem where the contents of any attached hard drives are exposed freely to the network, if you're not running a hardware firewall. This issue was discovered by Kano, a Phoronix Forums member and the developer behind the Kanotix distribution. DeviceVM had been notified of this blatant security issue, but it still appears the problem has gone unresolved.
On Voodoo IOS, which is a version of SplashTop for use by Hewlett-Packard, the security problem still persists. Any attached hard drives that are mounted are available to the network without any form of protection on port 1080.
