Reverse Screen Sharing Grabber
Authored by: Asmus Vierck on Dec 03, '10 10:47:09AM
I'm not really concerned about the security—even if someone actually wanted to control Dr-Cube, they'd only get access to my iTunes Library, there's nothing sensitive in it; as for my MacBook, it doesn't leave my sight.

You do realize that you are giving away your MacBooks username and password in plain text to Dr-Cube, right?! At least use could use the Keychain for that! Also, files that reside in /Library/Scripts are also available to every user on your computer!
Seriosly, please consider using: ssh username@dr-cube.local open vnc://username:password@macbook.local as it does what you need without giving away security.

Indeed.

"there's nothing sensitive in it"
Yes there is: local user access and a CPU... I bet it's still a member of "wheel", so "sudo -s" would get you a root shell. Hello keylogger on your *MacBook*.

"as for my MacBook, it doesn't leave my sight. "
Until the next fire drill, eh?

I've attempted to incorporate security concerns, but my abilities are modest--that why I was so excited by this little achievement in the first place.

If you want to contribute code, that would be awesome.
